My name is Sara. Thank you so much for visiting my online store. I have been homeschooling my girls since they were three using the Montessori method. During their primary years they loved the puzzle maps and as my children entered the lower elementary stage, I wanted them to use the Montessori pin map material. I found they were out of my budget, so I set out to create them myself. That is how the pin maps started. From there, I worked to commercially manufacture the maps, labels, and flag poles, so other families and schools on a budget could enjoy the pin map material, too!
You ask, what kind of training do you need to make pin maps? I have my Masters of Science in Information Systems from Indiana University. I moved to Washington DC to start my career as an IT Consultant. My assignments included doing database work for the Department of State and the US Patent and Trademark Office.
While in DC, I met my husband and after our first child was born, I left my career to become a stay-at-home mom and Montessori homeschooler. Homeschooling my children has really fulfilled my dream to teach. My mother was a biology and earth science teacher. She taught for over 30 years and has used her experience to write the teaching resources.
