Joy Painter

Asst. Teacher, Nai'a Toddler Class

When I was looking for a preschool for my son to attend, I was referred to this school by a friend. The Hawai’i Montessori Schools came highly recommended and I was not dissapointed. My son really enjoyed the school, and he was well prepared after graduating to another school.

I grew up on the beautiful islands of Hawai’i and attended high school here. I am now currently pursuing my BA.

I have taught at the Hawai’i Montessori Schools in Kona since 2005: in both the Extended Day program and as the Assistant Teacher in the Mo’o Primary Class. I truly love the kids. It is so rewarding to watch them and help them to discover.

I enjoy spending time with my son, reading, and Tahitian dancing.
