Primary South Staff

Molly Ramsay - Montessori Guide

Molly has been a Primary Guide with the school since 1993. She began her journey in Montessori education while pursuing a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. She “realized that everything they said was best practice in teaching, we were doing in the Montessori and they weren't doing in conventional schools. I couldn't continue with the conventional path. I followed what soon became my passion.” Molly earned a Bachelor’s degree in French (St. Catherine University, Pi Delta Phi French Honor Society and Phi Beta Kappa) and her Montessori Primary certificate. At SCMS, she appreciates “seeing a child become engrossed in challenging work. The look of sheer joy on a small face as success is attained” and “the daily hugs.”

Molly grew up in Stillwater, MN and lives in Hudson, WI with her husband and “naughty but adorable dog, Bo.” Her grown sons both live a bit farther East in WI. Her favorite activities are reading, swimming, walking, and singing along to music while cooking (while alone). If she could meet one famous dead person, it would be James Herriot because “I would love to hear his stories first-hand, perhaps over a pint (not that I really much like beer).” Her favorite game is Cranium and the super power she would most wish for would be to fly (she took a couple of flying lessons when she was fifteen years old).



Mikki Tuohy - Assistant

Mikki has worked as an assistant in Primary South at SCMS since 2012. She was inspired to teach Montessori because it matched her educational philosophy. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Secondary English Education (Winona State University). At SCMS, Mikki appreciates “getting to know all of (the students) individually.”

Mikki is from Albert Lea, MN and lives with her husband, daughter, and dog. Her hobbies are reading, writing, blogging, and spending time with family. Although her favorite musician is Bob Dylan, Mikki is also just as likely to sing along with Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” and dancing to anything by Prince. If she could travel anywhere in the world, she would prefer “a long, self-paced European tour. Then I could spend as much time exploring as I’d like.”
