Gwendolyn Horton

Director and Lead Teacher, Infant and Toddler Community

I am Palisades Montessori’s Infant and Toddler Community Director and Lead Teacher. Known as “Miss Gwen,” I am proud to put my 20 years of Montessori education experience to work every day. I am also an instructor of Toddler Pedagogy at the Montgomery Montessori Institute for Advanced Studies in Rockville, Maryland. In the past, I directed a Primary program at Toddlers on The Hill in Washington DC; served as a consultant for adult learners at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Silver Spring, MD; and led a variety of programs and seminars for prospective Montessori parents. I truly believe in the authenticity of Montessori education, especially in early childhood. As a young child, I attended a Montessori school during my Primary years – and I still remember my experience as a student to this day. I am the proud mother of Christopher, who recently had a birthday and is an official teenager now! I am also a fiancée, and a bonus mom to teens Michael and Sayla.
