Meet the Staff
The teachers must have the greatest respect for the young personality, realizing that in the soul of the child great values are hidden, and that in the minds of these boys and girls there lies all our hope of future progress and the judgment of ourselves and our times.
– Dr. Maria Montessori

SJ PhillipsOffice Manager
Montessori Affiliation: PAMS
When did you join One World? I have been affiliated with the school as a parent since 2010 and joined as a Guide in 2014. In June 2021, I became the office manager.
Educational Background: In addition to my Montessori training, I have a B.S. in Environmental Planning and a Master’s degree in City and Regional Planning from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. I also studied Horticulture and Landscape Design at Foothill College.
Additional Information: I have 2 children who attended One World in the past. I love being outside and particularly enjoy hiking, swimming and gardening. I love to travel and enjoy going to “off the beaten track” destinations. I am also interested in different art forms – visual, dance and performance. On a rainy day, you might find me baking with my children, watching movies or reading.
