Lower Elementary, Team Leader
Dawn Locke Grover began teaching in a Montessori environment in 1990. While doing her masters degree in experiential education, she accepted a summer teaching job with 3-6 year olds at Countryside Montessori School in Boulder, Colorado. She liked the Montessori philosophy so much that she taught at Countryside for 5 years, and then moved to Washington, DC to do her Montessori elementary training for 6-12 year old children. Both desire to travel and professional opportunity have led to a variety of teaching situations for Dawn since 1990. Wanting to settle closer to their roots, Dawn and her husband, Scott moved their family to Ithaca in 2003. Dawn began teaching at EACMSI in September of 2003. In her personal time, Dawn loves to read, hike, camp, travel, make art, and play games. She lives on West Hill with her husband, and her daughter Lily. Her son Cameron, an alum of EACMSI, attends Marist College.
