Our Principal Beth Ann Schnell

After 31 years of working for Cincinnati Public Schools, I have made the decision to retire at the end of the 2016-17 school year.

During these past nine years here at Dater Montessori, I have fostered many relationships and friendships. I have had the privilege to watch your children grow and prosper into amazing young people. I am proud to see the diversity that Dater Montessori has reached within its community and that I was able to share in this experience.

I will cherish all the wonderful memories I have made. Dater Montessori will always hold a special place in my heart, and I will miss you all. It is with a heavy heart that I have to say farewell to the Dater Montessori Community.
