Toddler & Beginnings Teacher
Sarah Veitenthal has been a part of Mountain Laurel Montessori School since 2011. The Veitenthal children, Emma, Audrey, and Tucker, are second generation students of Mountain Laurel, who’s father attended in the first years of the school in Mrs. Nixon’s primary class. Upon moving back to Front Royal, it was the family’s desire to find a school that complimented the emotional, physical, and intellectual development of the children already implemented at home; hence, another journey at Mountain Laurel began.
Mrs. Veitenthal obtained a BA in Philosophy from the University of Mary Washington and is currently working on a MA in Mental Health Counseling from Walden University. It is Mrs. Veitenthal’s hope to incorporate Dr. Montessori’s techniques in a counseling setting to promote overall wellbeing and positive development. Over the past four years, Mrs. Veitenthal has worked at Mountain Laurel as a lunch time/recess aide, Laurel Club provider, Primary substitute, Elementary Assisstant, Toddler Assistant, and Administrative Assistant.
Mrs. Veitenthal loves being a part of the Mountain Laurel community and appreciates the abundant support MLMS provides for her and her family. It is important to Mrs. Veitenthal to have her children involved in an educational community that provides not only vast intellectual opportunities but also promotes a spiritual and emotional balance. She looks forward to seeing her family grow and blossom as a part of the Mountain Laurel Community.
