Ms. Michelle & Ms. Haley



Primary Lead Teacher

Ms. Michelle comes to us from a Montessori school downtown. She brings over 20 years of experience teaching Preschool, Kindergarten, and First Grade. She is extremely excited that she was given the opportunity to start the very first Primary class at ECMCS! She received her Early Childhood Montessori credential as well as her Masters Degree from Rutgers Graduate School of Education in Early Childhood Literacy. She was chosen as Teacher of the Year in 1990, 2005, 2010 and 2013.  Michelle, her husband, four children, and two labrador retrievers moved to South Carolina in 2007 and are so happy to call Charleston home.


Ms. Haley holds her Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of South Carolina. Charleston is her hometown and she is excited to join East Cooper Montessori Charter School, working in our Primary Program. This past year she taught at Daniel Island Academy in their Preschool Classroom. She has experience teaching in 1st grade as well, but her true passion are the youngest learners. Prior to teaching she worked for the EdVenture Children’s Museum as well as the YMCA as a Camp Counselor. Her hobbies include going to the beach, cooking (eating!) and exploring nature.
