Welcome to Lori Lapallo!

We are so excited to welcome Lori Lapallo to our TNCA team! Lori will work as a Team Teacher alongside Elise Cross in our K4-Kindergarten classroom. A veteran Montessori teacher with over 15 years experience in the classroom, Lori came to us from Montessori Learning Community in West Asheville. She received her B.S. at Bloomsburg University and her teaching certification at East Stroudsburg University, and she has Montessori certification for ages three through six. Over the years, she has taught kindergarten through sixth grade on the Central Coast of California and in the Buncombe County Schools. Lori enjoys the WNC mountains, hiking, biking, sewing, reading, crafting, volunteering at her community park, and hanging out with her family, which includes her husband Dave and their children Marlee and Mya. We are all really looking forward to working with the experience, energy, and creativity that Lori brings to a classroom.
