Zahra Kassam

AMI Montessori certified teacher, M.Ed., Founder of Monti Kids

Zahra founded Monti Kids because even with all of her super powers, she couldn’t provide a comprehensive Montessori education for her infant son. With two degrees from Harvard, 10+ years teaching experience, and an AMI Montessori certification, she was well qualified for the challenge. “Simply, I want to give kids the best education and parents the best support.”
