Shelby Feldman is thrilled to begin her fourth year at Clementine Montessori School as the Co-Lead Teacher in Room 2. She earned her B.S. in Education from Temple University and has graduated with her Montessori Lead Teacher Certification and Masters in Education program from Chestnut Hill. After working at Greene Towne Montessori School, Shelby started at Clementine Montessori as the Extended Day Lead Teacher, followed by the Assistant Teacher and Lead Teacher in Room 1, and she is so excited to start the 2020/21 school year as a Co-Lead Teacher with Ms. Madeleine in Room 2. She taught outdoor education for several years and is excited to bring some of those components to outdoor play time. Shelby is a native Philadelphian and always loves exploring what the city has to offer.
