My name is Elayne Gwynne and I am honored to serve as the coordinator of our new counseling program! After teaching at the Carmichael Campus for four years and the Orangevale Campus for seven years, I developed a passion for helping students gain the extra support they needed in both the academic and social/emotional arenas. I also believe Montessori education is firmly grounded in a strong community, and that our schools are unique in the bonds we develop between our families and our schools. Some quick information about my background: In 2006, I began teaching at CMP after relocating to the Sacramento area. I earned my 6-9 Montessori credential, and enjoyed a fulfilling and amazing teaching career through the end of the 2016/17 school year. During my final year of teaching I decided to pursue my Master’s degree in counseling and Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) credential in order to begin serving the children of CMP in a slightly different capacity, due to the needs I observed throughout my years in the classroom. During the 2017/18 school year, I completed three internships at several public schools in the area, while continuing to be a guest teacher at the Orangevale Campus one day per week.

Hi Ya'll! My name is Amy Taber and I am joining the CMP School Counseling Team. I just moved here from Texas and looking forward to working with the students and staff of CMP and learning the Montessori concept. In Texas, I began my teaching career in 2010, where I taught Middle School for 9 years in public school setting. During that time, I was the Cheerleading Coach, Student Council Sponsor, Co-sponsor for a student led Christian group and a part of our District QuEST Committee and Ambassador Program. I received my Master’s degree in Education, specializing in School Counseling. Since moving to California, I have enjoyed the weather and getting acclimated to CMP. I am excited to get to know everyone and working with your child. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
