Mark Dobbins


Mark Dobbins has been the driving force in launching Red Bridge Montessori House. Mark has had a passion for Montessori Education for many years. He studied it formally at Chestnut Hill College and spent years looking for the right Montessori school for his two children. That journey was disappointing, with the best schools being too expensive and many others barely practicing the Montessorri philosophy they claim to represent. Eventually Mark found like minded Montessorians and founded Red Bridge Montessori House together with them. Now Mark supports the school however he can. May this school be everything you've been looking for in a Montessori Children's House!
