Sister Leonor Esnard is searching for former students who made up the first Montessori preprimary class at St. Joseph Academy in Adrian, Michigan in 1971-72. These students would have been ages 3-4 at the time in the class taught by Sister Leonor and Sister Anthonita Porta. Sister Leonor would love to find out how they are doing and perhaps plan a reunion. If you know how to get in touch with any of these people, please contact ADMTEI (Adrian Dominican Montessori Teacher Education Institute) or email Sister Leonor directly at [email protected]. Thanks for your assistance in this project!
