About me, Lisa Nolan: I am a trained and certified Montessori teacher with over 30 years of experience. I've taught Montessori in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1986. I took my Montessori primary training in 1986 at The Maria Montessori School of the Golden Gate in San Francisco with the late headmistress, Ursula Thrush. I took my Montessori elementary (6-9) training in 1988 at The Maria Montessori School of the Golden Gate in San Francisco (with the late headmistress Ursula Thrush) through the University Extension, University of California Berkeley. I received an MA from San Francisco State University in English Literature and Creative Writing.

I am also a Montessori homeschool consultant, a podcaster, a stay-at-home work-at-home mom, a semi-retired blogger, and a recovering indie publisher. I guess you can call me a one-mom operation!
