More About Carolyn Lucento

I'm a long time Montessorian, a grandmother, and admirer of wild flowers, music, and art of all kinds. I created Magical Movement Company in 1992 as a way to enrich the learning experiences of the people around me through Music, Dance, Drama, The Arts and Nature. Over the years, I have worked and played with so many wonderful beings that I just had to create a "company" that includes all of them!

Since 2013, I have been an Orff-Schulwerk Music Specialist in Montessori programs throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Currently I teach one Lower Elementary and thirty Preschool classes each week...that's more than 850 students! And, I love it! 

Before this, I was a Site Director at Fountainhead Montessori and before that I was an ECE Instructor at the American College of California. In 1998, as ECE Instructor, I attained the CA Department of Education PITC Certification Levels 1-4 (Program for Infant & Toddler Caregivers). 

Currently, I am an AMS Instructor at the Fountainhead Montessori Teacher Training Program in Dublin, CA.

I have also owned my own Montessori School, Albion Children's House (in Mendocino, CA). In the 1980's I was the designer at our stained glass business, Asheville Art Glass, with my husband. (in Asheville, NC) And, before all that, I was a High School Social Studies teacher!

In 1980, I received my first Montessori Training from St. Nicholas Montessori College in London, and I became re-certified with AMS in 2006 through the Fountainhead Montessori Adult Education Program where I currently teach their Music Training Workshops to Montessori Interns each Spring.

I have certification in Orff-Schulwerk Music Education for children Preschool through Lower Elementary. I've danced with several Dance Companies in the SF Bay Area and I sing and play traditional Mountain Music on my Appalachian Dulcimer & Autoharp.

My own children were homeschooled through their High School years in our Montessori program, Pacific Coast Erdkinder.
