Harper is a Teaching Assistant with Ms. Veal and co-teaching Art Lab with Heather Eiden. Originally from Evanston, Illinois, she has since moved to Wauwatosa and lived there for the past 15 years. She has a masters degree in Art Education and a BFA in Photography. For over 10 years, Harper taught art to elementary-aged students in the Wauwatosa school district. Before beginning this fall she co-taught a summer photography class with Roger Gonzalez.
One reason Harper loves to work at MMS is the Montessori philosophy of understanding how children learn new material. Her children also attend the school and she is excited to be able to see them grow each day. In her off time, Harper loves to cook, tend to her massive vegetable garden, travel, play with her kids, and of course, take photos of her many adventures.
