For some she needs no introduction… for others, well soon enough you’ll know and love her as much as the rest of us do. The team at Villa di Maria literally could not be more thrilled to have Robyn Milos return – home! – as our new Assistant Head of School. Welcome back, Robyn!
How/when did you become interested in Montessori education?
I found my love of Montessori as a two-and-half-year-old 😊 Mrs. Pearl Vanderwall, VdM and Montessori Training Center founder, was my teacher when I was a little girl, right here at Villa. I knew after my first two sons were born that I would love to be a part of something that made me who I am and which I had always held in the highest regard.
What do you enjoy doing outside of your time at VdM?
Drinking coffee while sitting outside and hanging out with all of the Milos Boys (sons and grandsons!).
If you were to plan a most perfect, relaxing weekend day, what would it entail?
Breakfast at First Watch with my peeps, getting in the car, rolling the windows down, and driving just to see where it takes us! Road-tripping, even if for a day, is a Milos Fav.
What is something you look forward to this year?
I am just thrilled to be home! I look forward to getting to know all of the families I have not met, seeing all of the children in their environments, and being at the Best Place on Earth once again.
