Welcome to Mrs. Wilson’s Room, The Puffin Nest!

I am a native Mainah, born in Bangor and have lived in several towns and cities. I attended schools in Falmouth, Portland and graduated from Mattanawcook Academy in Lincoln. I received a BA in English with an emphasis on creative writing from the University of Maine at Farmington. When my son was born I researched child development and philosophies of education and fell in love with Montessori’s theories and methods of educating “the absorbent mind”. I attended Maine Montessori Institute and interned at Stillwater Montessori school while Oliver was 2; and I have had the joy of being either in the same classroom or campus with him until he was in 2nd grade.
I am the luckiest teacher in the building and am so honored to be a part of each of my students’ first Brooklin School experience. I am grateful for the opportunity to watch and be a part of their days and celebrate their growth and successes. Each day in the Puffin’s Nest is truly THE BEST DAY EVER!

Expectations for class:

  • I believe that all of you are able to learn math at the highest levels.
  • Come to class ready to learn and ask questions. Always ask yourself in math: why does this make sense?
  • Math is not about speed. I want you to be thinking deeply, finding connections between topics, and learning how others think about math.
  • Get ready to work in groups frequently. We will work on norms for great group behavior.
  • Homework will be given out on Monday through Thursday. In that homework, it is okay to make mistakes. These mistakes grow your brain.
  • I want you to experience a productive struggle in math. If it is easy, we need to dig deeper and find a challenge for you.
