Ms. Polly & Ms. Sam


Primary Lead Teacher 

Ms. Polly has 17 years of experience teaching Montessori Primary, her SC State Certification, and also experience as a Montessori Teacher Trainer for the Palmetto Montessori Institute. She began several Montessori Primary programs, including the Montessori Primary Program at James Simmons as well as a program for Sundrops. She believes that Montessori is not just a teaching philosophy but a lifestyle. She had the honor of receiving her Montessori training under Anthonita Porta, American Montessori Society lifetime award recipient. Outside of school, she enjoys spending time with her husband, 10-year- old daughter and 2 basset hounds. She loves to be outdoors, especially on the water. 

Primary Assistant Teacher 

We are excited to introduce Ms. Samantha Mercier as Ms. Polly's Teacher Assistant! Ms. Samantha brings several years of experience building her own home school, as well as experience as a Teacher Assistant at O'Quinn. She says "children are her mission" and feels organically drawn to Montessori. Her child, Ellis, began at ECMCS this year in 1st grade and she is thrilled to be part of the ECMCS family.
