Pre-K One

My name is Michelle Hatten.  I am very excited to be your child’s Pre K teacher.  I have been teaching at Northlake Montessori since 2005.  I received my Montessori training in 2006. I love working with this age group because they learn so much in a short amount of time. This is where true learning really begins. I love teaching at Northlake because I have the opportunity of watching the children grow up from our infant to Kindergarten
programs. Many of my previous preschool and Kindergarten students come back to visit me from public school and I can see the progress that they have made.  It makes me feel wonderful to know that I helped create their foundation for learning.

My family consists of me and my daughter Livy, who recently turned 19 years old.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with friends, exercising, watching movies and playing with my daughter.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be your child’s teacher and I look forward to working with you and your child throughout the school year.  Please feel welcome to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have.

Hello! My name is Krystal Shafer. I started working at Northlake Montessori January of 2015. I have always been very good with kids, many of my friends and family have told me through the years how they could see me as a teacher.  I took a Child Development class in high school, and worked with a class of Kindergarteners for a semester. Outside of work, I love writing, painting and photography. I am getting newly married (August 2018) and starting a new chapter of my life. J I am looking forward to all that the future holds here at Northlake
