Celebrating a Fourteen Year Anniversary with Ms. Chiste

Categories: Spotlight on Our Teachers

This February is the 14-year celebration of Ms. Chiste joining the staff at Wheaton Montessori School!  Please join us in celebrating this special teacher!



Ms. Chiste joined the staff in February 14 years ago.  She began by teaching Creative Movement, which she continues to teach after school on Mondays.  She also worked school office as an administrator while Rebecca Lingo was still teaching in the primary classroom.  Her son Martin  joined her at work each day – as an infant!


Because she was already AMI-certified, she was able to step into the classroom and give lessons and connect with children when needed.  After two years heading the office, Ms. Chiste stepped back into the classroom full-time, taking over for Ms. Lingo, who now runs the office. Her daughter Cammi and her son Martin both attended WMS and continue to return to visit.
