Two local teachers and moms are fed up with a local school system that they say is failing our children. So they took matters into their own hands and founded a new Montessori School in Wenatchee that will open next year.
Anni Hisay [rhymes with SPICY] is director of the new Joyful Scholars non-profit, bilingual Montessori School. She said the school will start out with up to 20 1st through 3rd graders and is perfect for curious children who are not being served by other schools in the valley. Isaac Kaplan-Woolner has more.
And anyone interested in issues related to improving education is invited to a public forum at Eastmont Junior High School tonight from 6-7:45pm. Anni Hisey will be one of the featured speakers at the event.
