Leah Erato has been working with children for over 18 years in a variety of settings. Her passion for Montessori was sparked while working with the inspiring staff in Upper Level as an aide. After three years at EACMSI she followed her heart, completed her 3-6 training, and received her Primary Certification in June 2011 from CMTE. Leah lives in Ithaca with her dancing daughter Emma and sweet son Jack. In her spare time she loves to sew, paint, bake and read. Leah and her family can often be found hiking with their pup Caper or chasing chickens around their yard.
