The fourth of twelve children, Lower Elementary Teacher Jane Keuler says her mother in many ways was like a Montessori teacher, keeping everyone working and busy in their home. Drawn to artistic fields, Jane earned a BA in Art and Music from UW-Milwaukee where she also continued post-graduate work. Jane obtained her Montessori Teaching Certification in 2003 and began teaching in the lower elementary at New World Montessori. In 2007, Jane joined the MMS Lower Elementary faculty where she has been ever since. Jane is an accomplished musician; she played violin with the UWM Orchestra for fourteen years and plays the piano. She also designs logos and has had illustrations published. Jane enjoys working in the garden and crocheting. If you wake up before the sun rises, you might find Jane out on the road. Every day in the summer, she runs or rides her road bike for miles. In the winter, she rises at 4 AM to run, doing this five or more days a week.
