Georgie Reigel is the Lead Lower Elementary guide. She joined the MVMC staff in 2017 and is currently working to complete her Lower Elementary (6-12) certification from the American Montessori Society (AMS) from the Montessori Education Center of the Rockies in Boulder, CO.

She received her BS Ed in Dance Education from the University of Georgia and an MA in Leadership from Shorter University.
Although dance was her first love, Montessori has continually held a special place in her heart. Georgie was fortunate to have grown up in a household that embraced the Montessori approach. Her mother was a long time primary teacher, and Georgie is proud to follow in her footsteps, sharing her passion for guiding, supporting, and encouraging the whole child, so that they can thrive independently in an environment that has a place for everyone.
When she is not teaching she enjoys spending time with her husband Ben and their three children-Caroline, Charlie and Livia.
