Lead Guide: Sandy McCoy 

Originally from Orlando, Florida, Sandy graduated from the University of Central Florida (“Go Knights!”) with a Bachelor’s of Science in Anthropology in 2008. Soon after graduating she decided to go into education and taught 8th grade Science for 8 years in the Orange County Public Schools. Sandy and Ryan, her husband, and their two children, Roland and Stella, moved to Key West. This is also when she stumbled upon May Sands Montessori School and fell in love with our school and the philosophy of Montessori education. This exciting new discovery started her on a journey – she became an Upper Elementary Lead Guide for our school, and completed her Montessori Elementary I & II credentials from the American Montessori Society in the summer of 2019. Sandy says “It is a privilege to work with you and your children, and I look forward to a wonderful and memorable year.”

Classroom Assistant: Grace Moon 

Grace is originally from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Theater Production with a focus on Stage Management. She joined our team as an Upper Elementary Classroom Assistant in 2019, and although this is has been an introduction to the Montessori education philosophy, she says that she looks forward to learning with the students!
