THE SCHOOL AT A GLANCE
WHO IS MRS. PAYAN?
Mrs. Fatima Payan has been teaching preschool and elementary students in the Montessori method since 1989. Her enthusiasm, expertise, and success has been proven throughout the years.
She directs personal attention to each student in the school, using her keen sense of observation and listening to monitor group dynamics and working with students on an individual learning plan. Accessibility to the teacher is very important in the small group setting. Mrs. Payan is supported by trained teacher assistants at all times to ensure adequate attention can be provided for all students.
Mrs. Payan is certified by the American Montessori Society (AMS) as a Montessori Preschool and Elementary teacher, and holds director credentials for a child care facility. She holds a Master’s Degree in Montessori Elementary Education from Barry University and a Master’s Degree in Sociology from University of Jussieu, Paris (France). Mrs. Payan has also served as an adjunct professor in the Montessori program at Barry University. She speaks fluent French and Spanish.
Mrs. Payan holds a Level 1 Practitioner Certification on the The Tomatis® Method, a natural, noninvasive sensory stimulation approach that aims to optimize the ear’s potential to train the brain, enhancing motor, emotional and cognitive skills. The Method is not a medical treatment or a diagnostic tool but rather a stimulation program that helps the brain’s ability to analyze sensory information. The Tomatis® Method is offered as an enrichment to the child’s Montessori environment to enhance coordination, listening skills, attention, sensorial and emotional self-regulation
