Please join the Seward staff in welcoming Edward Kramer to our learning community. He is looking forward to working with our E2 students in room 208! Here's a note from Edward:

My educational career began as a finance major at the University of St. Thomas. Working in derivatives and fixed-income securities in downtown Minneapolis was not my thing, so I went to school again for conventional education. I received my Master's in Education at St. Mary's University. However, this was not the right fit either.

Luckily I substitute taught at a Montessori school in St. Paul and discovered Montessori education. I began as a Montessorian at J. J. Hill Montessori School and was there for around 6 years. At that point, I went abroad where I opened a Montessori school in Moscow, Russia.

My favorite part of the Montessori curriculum is Math, with language a close second. In my spare time I enjoy making Montessori materials, working on vintage motorcycles, and playing with my three cats.
