Carley Hines is a teacher, mother, and future Montessorian. This is her daughter’s second year at Montessori Community School and she could not be more thankful to be a part of the MCS community. Having been on the parent side, she is now very excited to be joining the staff as a Montessori Intern and Special Needs resource for the teachers and families at MCS.
Carley was born and raised in Utah. She loves music, travel and lots of playtime with her family. Her and her husband own a business that they’ve grown over the past 8 years through many different jobs and schooling. Carley earned her BA from Westminster College in Marketing and went on to work in that field for a few years, holding different positions in management. During her undergraduate she was part of the service learning scholar program where she was a literacy tutor at title 1 schools and always loved it. That experience is what made her decide to go back to school in 2011 to pursue a Master’s degree. Carley received a Master’s of Arts in Teaching in both general and special education. She then taught at Washington Elementary in Salt Lake City until having her daughter. This past year she has been back at Westminster supervising teacher candidates in the Mild/Moderate special education program. To her, it has been an encouraging experience to be on multiple sides of education - as a student, teacher, parent and supervisor in both general and special education. Carley feels strongly that education should be accessible to all children; and feels grateful to be able to offer support in any way that she can to MCS families.
