Sonia Philips

Primary Guide
From her youngest days, Sonia loved children and wanted to be a Montessori guide, following in the footsteps of her Mother, who continues to work at a Montessori school in Mesa, Arizona. She trained at the AMI training centre at St. Bridget’s Convent in Colombo, Sri Lanka under Ms. Joyce Gunasekera, who herself was trained directly by Dr. Maria Montessori. Sonia devoted a year teaching at various schools in Sri Lanka as a practicum student. In the year following her graduation, she also trained students at the AMI training centre. In 1997, she moved from the tropical island of Sri Lanka to work at Montessori Alberta, where she spent 5 years as a guide. Sonia joined CMS in 2002. Sonia is a fun loving and creative mother who devotes all of her time away from CMS to being everything her three children need her to be. One of her favourite quotes is, “Now what really makes a teacher is love for the human child; for it is love that transforms the social duty of the educator into the higher consciousness of a mission” - Dr. Maria Montessori
