Ms. Polly & Ms. Kendra

Polly Schultz


Primary Lead Teacher

Polly has 17 years of experience teaching Montessori Primary, her SC State Certification, and also experience as a Montessori Teacher Trainer for the Palmetto Montessori Institute. She began several Montessori Primary programs, including the Montessori Primary Program at James Simmons as well as a program for Sundrops. She believes that Montessori is not just a teaching philosophy but a lifestyle. She had the honor of receiving her Montessori training under Anthonita Porta, American Montessori Society lifetime award recipient. Outside of school, she enjoys spending time with her husband, 10-year- old daughter and 2 basset hounds. She loves to be outdoors, especially on the water.


Kendra spent the past 7 years as the Educational Coordinator for the Children’s Museum. She has designed, led, staffed, and coordinated activities for the Children’s Museum, the Children’s Museum Holiday and Summer Camps, and CCSD In-Service Programs for students. As the Director of School Outreach Programs, she has also taught in 37 Charleston County School District classrooms the past two years, bringing STEM and STEAM learning to students ages 3-5. It was her time spent in other classrooms that motivated her to make a change so that she could be 100% classroom based. She is trained in Conscious Discipline, leads the Children’s Museum Volunteer Program of over 250 volunteers, and is passionate about STEM Education and Gardening with children. She holds her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from USC and aspires to lead her own Montessori classroom in the future.
