When Stacy became a foster mother, she started researching different parenting and education ideas. Learning about the Montessori Method was intriguing and fascinating, and Stacy enjoyed watching the little ones in her life learn and grow from incorporating Montessori elements into her family’s lifestyle.
When she is not busy being a foster mom or researching the Montessori Method, she also writes about antiques and runs a wedding and party supply company, Ella Celebration.
