Founder & Executive Director
Robyn was born and grew up in New Zealand. Robyn's mother still lives in New Zealand and Robyn travels there a few times a year to spend time with her and other family members and close friends. Before she married Robyn was a Public School elementary teacher and taught in New Zealand and British Columbia, Canada. She is married to Robert Buchanan. They have four children - Jordyn and his wife Laura who live in New York, Jemmyn and his wife Stephanie and Marisa and her husband Dave all of whom live in Salt Lake County and KereAna who lives in Wellington, New Zealand. Robyn obtained her Montessori credential through Montessori World Education Institute. Robyn loves to travel and has been fortunate to travel extensively. She loves to read, attend the theatre, spend time at the beach, swim, walk, go to Zumba and spend time with family and friends. Her greatest joy is spending time with her grandchildren - AnaMarie and Belladova (Dovie) who are students at MCS. What Robyn likes best about working at our school is the joyfulness of the children and her relationship with her peers. A little known fact about Robyn is that she is a descendent of Te Wharepouri, a Maori chief.
