Virginia Stone is the daughter of Montessori teachers and attended Montessori schools herself from ages 2 1/2 to 15, including both Odyssey Montessori and Two Rivers Montessori (both predecessors of Sunstone Montessori). Virginia started working in a Montessori environment 15 years ago when she worked in a Montessori summer program.
She graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a degree in Science, Technology, and Society and a minor in Environmental Studies, with a tight focus on education. Upon her return to Portland, Virginia was thrilled to join the Sunstone community. She served as the Children’s House aftercare coordinator, administrative support, admissions assistant and alumni relations before completing the Assistance to Infancy teacher training at Montessori Northwest. Virginia joined the Toddler Community as Assistant Guide in 2014, and joyfully transitioned into the Lead Guide position in 2016.
In her spare time, Virginia knits, reads, gardens, and cooks with her husband and cat in SE Portland. She is grateful that she can bring these skills and interests to the community!
