My name is Brenda Murphy and I'm the directress of the "Quadrifoglio" School. I started my teacher journey when I was a young woman, as an assistent to a local school. It wasn't hard to understand my life' s calling as from my earliest moments with the children my choise became obvious.
In time, I earned my teaching qualifications, with special interest in Pedagogy. After this, I earned a Montessori specializzation wich gave me further expertise in educating young children. From this experience, I understood my great responsability in protecting, respecting, and guiding the children during this phase of grouth.
My father is American and my mother is Italian, so I was born into a bilingual home. Obviously this was for me a great fortune. To be able to create a bilingual school to give other children the same opportunity as mine is a precious chance that other children should not pass up!
At present, I' m a mother of one( a daughter) and in December our second child will be born. This education/upbringing are very important to my husband and I. This fact makes me even more happy that I had them. I' m sure that through our bilingual school and the Montessori method, we can provide a necessary and solid scholastic base.

My name is Jessica Coombes, I come from a big family in Australia and have always loved being surrounded by my little baby cousins.

After finishing my studies at university and working for a little while as a secondary school teacher, an opportunity came to me as teaching drama workshops to little kids and at this point I found further interest in working with younger children.

I am currently very passionate about yoga and have always loved the theatre and doing drama; these are two disciplines I feel are vital for a child's development and I am happy that in my current work I can implement these.

Now I am a English kindergarten and preschool teacher in the 'IL QUADRIFOGLIO' SCHOOL.

Teaching English to young kids is a dream come true for me.

I'm Marilena and I'm a montessori educator. I've been working as an educator for a long time and for 3 years in this school. I love my job and I choose it because for me it is not a duty but a passion I have been cultivating for years.

A child as MONTESSORI teaches us is " a complete being capable of developing creative energies .. "
Our method impels gradually to become more self independent and at the same time learn how to take care of others.

I know that our efforts are not wasted because the children affirm it with their smiles, hugs and happiness
