It has been my great privilege to work with Mary Lou and to work at such a flagship Montessori School, a school, a community, that has been guided so steadily and creatively by the extraordinary vision of Mary Lou Cobb. Her unflinching dedication to children, to implementing Dr. Maria Montessori’s discoveries and insights with both a vigilant and detail-oriented eye and above all with a most kind heart that is her legacy.

Mary Lou’s rich and extensive background as an educator and school leader enables her to shift seamlessly between strategy that influences the whole school and the tactics that impact individual classrooms. 

As a consultant she partners beautifully with faculty, establishing supportive relationships essential to helping teachers develop their practice, nurture their strengths, and identify areas for growth. In addition, she has been a thoughtful and empathetic ally to me, as leader of our school.  She is a treasured asset.

Mary Lou is a caring, compassionate and humble person with so much wisdom to offer Montessori communities. Anyone who has the pleasure of working with her will feel a sense of purpose as she guides you to a deeper understanding of this important work.
