Our History

The Montessori Market began as the seed of an idea planted in 2017 and blossomed with our first community event in the spring of 2019. While the pandemic of 2020 paused our physical market events we are using this opportunity to demonstrate student creativity using virtual platforms such as the launch of our website! For more information check out the short video below made by one of our board members.

Our Team

The Montessori Market is made possible by an amazing team of teachers, students, administrators, neighbors and community members. Our board officers include President Jason Banks, Secretary Anna Hill and Treasurer Mary Dudley. Our student leaders apply for specific positions within the nonprofit organization and fulfill their roles throughout the school year. Students choose which area of entrepreneurship they would like to experience in depth such as human resources, safety and regulations, finances, digital media and marketing. Students hold regular meetings to discuss challenges, identify solutions and plan for the future.
