She holds her Master’s Degree in Elementary Education, is a Massachusetts certified teacher for grades 1-6, and is a certified Preschool teacher through Massachusetts Early Education and Care. After receiving her Master’s in Elementary Education, she decided her true passion was working with younger children so she went back to school to gain her Montessori certification in Early Childhood from the American Montessori Society.

Deena strives to build and develop relationships with each of her students. She is energetic and her excitement and curiosity of learning is easily conveyed to the children as she is a firm believer that learning should be fun, creative, and interactive.
