Liesl Taylor is the Lead Guide in the Willow Elementary Environment. Prior to her work at Sunny Hollow, she spent 20 years in two public Montessori programs in the Twin Cities, in various roles including Elementary Guide, Director of Pedagogy, and Head of School. While Liesl has treasured all her experiences, spending time with elementary children is among her greatest joys, which explains her excitement over beginning her third year back in the classroom here at Sunny Hollow! Liesl holds her AMI Elementary Certificate from the Montessori Center of Minnesota and earned her Minnesota elementary and 5th-8th grade science license from St. Scholastica in 2010. Liesl is currently completing her AMI Consultant training. Liesl adores time with her three adult children, Bailey, Jordan and Trey, and her husband Chandler. Her favorite pastimes are yoga, Nordic skiing, reading, and spending time in the woods with her dogs.
