Donna Butcher

I am Donna Butcher, co-founder of CHMS in 1991 and sole owner since 1998. I have worked in Montessori education since 1981 teaching at the toddler, 3-6 and 6-9 levels. I have been a full time administrator since 2000, personally overseeing all aspects of our school with the help of this amazing staff! I have a Bachelors Degree from Northern Illinois University in Elementary Education and hold an American Montessori Society Certificate for 6-9 year olds. We all continue to grow professionally by attending workshops and conferences. I am a widow with 2 grown sons, Brent (35) a graduate of  DePaul Law School practicing law in Chicago and Jamison (32) a successful sound engineer and musician, who both benefited from a  Montessori Education. I am actively involved at Willow Creek Community Church, I love music, reading, photography, time with friends and family, Cubs and Blackhawks hockey! I grew up in West Dundee and strive to make this program a great asset and service to the community and it's surrounding areas.
