Meet the Staff at Sunny Hollow Montessori

Kira Donnelly

Head of School
Kira has spent the last 30 years in education teaching mathematics to students ages six to adult. She became involved with Montessori professionally in 2006 when she joined Great River School. Since then she has started two adolescent programs, one at the Montessori School of Tokyo and one at Monmouth Montessori Academy. Kira spent three years leading Oak Knoll Montessori School in Pasadena, CA before joining Sunny Hollow.
Although Kira has moved around a lot in her life, she considers Minnesota home and is thrilled to be leading this amazing group of educators at Sunny Hollow.
Kira and her husband Mike have three grown children all of whom attended Montessori schools! In her free time, Kira enjoys reading, traveling, and enjoying a perfect cup of coffee.
