Abby Kocher

Assistant Primary Teacher

Abby came to RMS through her experience as a parent of two daughters who attend the school. She received both her undergraduate degree in Psychology and a Masters in Divinity from Duke University. She values the Montessori emphasis on the unique wonder of each child, and the commitment to peacemaking and caring for one another as the greatest expressions of human community. Prior to coming to RMS, Abby led church congregations and worked in a variety of community based organizations in North Carolina and Virginia. She grew up in eastern North Carolina and enjoys the outdoors, swimming, reading, and being with her family.
