Tessa Musel

Lead Teacher - Primary CR2

Ms. Tessa Musel is beginning her 5th year as primary Lead Teacher in Classroom 2. Before becoming a lead, Ms. Tessa started her Montessori Journey in 2009 in a small Montessori school as a late day teacher and served the students after the school day had ended. As she learned more about the pedagogy, she decided to seek more information about how the classroom functions during the school day, and what the Montessori Philosophy is truly about. It was from this curiosity she discovered Desert Garden Montessori. She started as an assistant in Classroom 2, gained experience and became a Lead Teacher after obtaining her Montessori Education Diploma in 2013. Ms. Tessa and her husband, Chris have two children, Graydon, age 4 and Emmalyn, age 1, who attend Desert Garden Montessori in the Primary and Toddler programs.
