Jill J. Ferrer (Founder/Director)
Jill has been teaching for more than 30 years. She dedicated her first 19 years teaching music to preschoolers up to junior high school students. Before moving in to Ocala, she used to choreograph, direct, and write scripts for stage performances. In 1997, she worked as a part-time music teacher at another Montessori school, and then was asked to take the Early Childhood Montessori training. Shortly after, she took the Montessori Elementary training and taught in the elementary classroom for five years. At the same time, Jill worked as the Assistant Director of another Montessori school. Because of her passion and dedication, she got promoted to Co-Director and became the Director not long after. She worked there for more than 10 years before she established our institution.
