Whole Earth Montessori

Joseph Galante, M.Ed.

As a former Montessori student, Joseph has been a part of WEM from day one not only working with the school’s Founder as a classroom assistant during the summer programs but also helping to build and create the school with his own two hands.  At 13 years old, Joseph spent the summer with his father and friends completing construction of the original remodel of the school’s present location.  During the first year in operation at our current site, Joseph instructed Martial Arts to WEM students.

Joseph holds a Master’s Degree in Education from Central Washington University, a B.A. from Western Washington University and a Washington State Teaching Certificate.

Acting first as a consultant to WEM, Joseph joined part-time as an Assistant Director in 2002.  Joseph joined WEM full-time as the school’s Director in 2005.

Joseph’s vision is a world in which all humans experience social justice and demonstrate respect for self, others, and the environment. Developing these values at a young age will help to ensure that socially responsible, emotionally balanced, and emotionally intelligent children become young adults who choose to make a positive impact in the world and on those around them.  His passion is to create an environment in which children will thrive under the most optimal conditions; a place that would serve each child as a unique individual having a vital role to play on the overall scheme of life on earth by igniting within each of them a fire to seek out their highest potential.

Professionally Joseph is heavily involved with the development of Foundation Education’s Active Waitlists.  Joseph’s personal passions center around his love for Bulldogs (French and English), and Automotive Racing.
