Liesl Heide Taylor is Directory of Elementary Pedagogy for Cornerstone Montessori Elementary School. She came to Cornerstone as a guide with ten years of experience in public charter Montessori environments, to join the team founding the elementary program in 2011. Liesl assisted on the Montessori Center of Minnesota’s elementary teacher-training course, assessing student work and mentoring new teachers for three years prior to beginning her work in administration. Liesl holds her AMI Elementary Certificate from the Montessori Center of Minnesota and her Elementary State Teaching license with a specialty in 5-8 Science, from St. Scholastica. Liesl’s undergraduate degree is in Psychology and Family Studies from St. Olaf College. Prior to her Montessori career, Liesl worked in Early Intervention as a Cognitive Development Specialist and, later, in Parent Education. Liesl found Montessori through her three now-grown Montessori children, who are boundless inspiration to her and who fuel her passion to increase access for all children to high quality Montessori programs.
