Biography

Catherine Penney joined the Wheaton Montessori School staff as an Elementary Assistant in the Fall of 2018.   Ms. Penney provides support in the classroom by protecting student concentration and work, enabling lessons through assisting students when the teacher is occupied with another student, and modeling grace and courtesy for the mixed-age classroom.

As a child, Catherine attended Montessori schools for Primary and Lower Elementary.  She earned her undergraduate degree at Wheaton College and her graduate degree from the Sewanee School of Letters.  In her free time, she enjoys reading, particularly literary fiction.

Prior to joining the WMS Staff, Ms. Penney volunteered hours of her time helping with the Annual Auction and organizing Creative Writing Workshops for our Adolescent Community.  Mrs. Penney’s two daughters attend Wheaton Montessori School.
