Saren Peetz

Early Elementary Community Guide

Saren attended Hudson Montessori School and came to Hershey to study as a 9th-grade student (Hershey did not yet have a high school in those years). She volunteered multiple times a week on the farm through high school and during her summers in college. Before returning to Hershey as a guide, Saren attended College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine and completed her AMI Montessori training outside of Baltimore. Her first teaching position involved the starting of the first elementary classroom at a tiny rural Montessori school in Virginia.

She and her partner, Ian, have two bunnies, a blind kitty, a California king snake, and about 360,000 honeybees in six colonies! She also frequently visits her childhood horse and dog at her family’s home nearby
