Tiffany Liddell is an AMI Primary Trainer who was born and raised in the beautiful Northwest of Oregon. She moved to Phoenix, AZ to pursue the AMI Primary (2 1/2-6) training in 2005 with her two young children and husband. She quickly discovered, that as she implemented her training with her own children, that Montessori is much more than an educational approach, it is an aid to life. After her AMI graduation in 2006, she became a Lead Primary Guide in a Charter Montessori school. After her fourth child, she decided to stay home and open in-home Montessori Preschool where she could offer a Montessori environment to children in her neighborhood. Tiffany holds a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree in Education with specialization in Early Childhood Education, in addition to an Arizona State Teaching credential for Early Childhood. Concurrent with teaching children, Tiffany began teaching in higher education, instructing adult learners and has over 10 years of experience in online learning, instruction, and design in early childhood, adult coaching, and human development courses. Tiffany has also been involved in the greater Arizona Early Childhood community by facilitating professional development workshops across the state and has provided coaching in early childhood classrooms for a national credentialing program for early childhood professionals. With her experience working with both children and adults, Tiffany decided that combining her passions for the Montessori approach and teaching adults was her next step in life. Tiffany began that journey with the Southwest Institute of Montessori Studies in 2015.
