Emily Smart

Assistant Primary Teacher, Montessori Enrichment Staff
 
Emily Smart is grateful for her role at Richmond Montessori School. After years of working with young children in various childcare facilities, Emily is excited to continue her experience in the Montessori classroom. She earned a certificate in Early Childhood in 2019 and is eager to continue her education while working at RMS. Emily loves any opportunity to create, connect with others, be outdoors, and spend time with family and friends.
 
Emily will assist lead teacher Kim Sutton this year.
