Emily Arend

Upper Elementary Lead Teacher

  • Masters of Education: Elementary Education
  • AMI Diploma: Elementary I and II
  • 13 Years Teaching Experience

Emily and her family moved from California back to Louisville in 2013 to be closer to family. Most of Emily’s free time is spent with her two small children and husband, being outdoors, traveling, and just being together. She has been a Montessori teacher since 2004, working with infants through middle school students in Chicago, the Bay Area, and now Louisville.

Emily  was drawn to Montessori education because of the element of peace and character education. “When I first observed the 3-6 year olds resolving conflicts peacefully and showing grace and courtesy to one another and the adults, I was excited to learn more. Through Cosmic Education, Montessori education impresses upon the children that they have a purpose and a place in this world.” She believes that through small, safe communities like their Montessori classrooms, students learn how to resolve conflicts and that their actions have consequences, whether positive or negative. “I hope to instill in the children I teach that they can make the world a better, more peaceful place.”
