Lower Elementary Guide
M.Ed. Montessori Elementary Education from Loyola University in Baltimore, Maryland
B.S. Mathematics from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
JR Devallon began at Greenspring Montessori in 2017 as a Lower Elementary Lead Guide.
JR has an extensive background working with children. He has served as an AMERICORPS HEADS UP tutor, a mentor at Dranesville Elementary School, a private mathematics tutor, and a Sunday school teacher. Although JR was initially drawn to a career in business and finances, he has always loved working with children. After working in the corporate world for over ten years, JR was introduced to Montessori education through a friend and he decided to pursue his true calling.
We are most excited about JR’s amazing positive energy when working in the classroom. The students in JR’s classroom are eager to start each day and find new discoveries.
