Alumna Leading Change in Montessori Education

We send sincere congratulations to Antioch University’s Graduate School of Leadership and Change alumna, Dr. Charis Sharp, as she recently accepted the position of Executive Director of Metro Montessori, a family of private schools in Washington, D.C. and Maryland. Dr. Sharp’s role entails aligning and strengthening the pedagogy and practice of the schools, supporting the heads of school and teachers in educational leadership and professional development, and deepening the understanding and application of both Montessori and conventional educational practices organization-wide. In addition, she is involved in national-level policy work through her membership on the Montessori Public Policy Initiative (MPPI) council. MPPI provides strategic thinking, data, and networking to Montessorians working at the state level to affect policy in ways to allow Montessori schools to implement the philosophy at the highest level. Most recently, she managed a state policy landscape analysis conducted by Bellwether Education Partners which illuminated trends and common policy related obstacles to authentic Montessori education across 37 states.
