Anita Blalock is a graduate of Master’s level in Cultural Anthropology and Communication, University of Pecs, Hungary. Research, discovery and learning about societies and cultures is her passion. Like many parents before her, she discovered Montessori education when her daughter was born [and was eager to find] a learning environment that respects each child’s unique needs and allows them to choose their educational path independently.
She worked for Cary Montessori as a teacher, then as an Assistant Director while her daughter was a student there. She joined CGMS to develop the Administrator Program for Montessori school directors, the newest certificate program to pursue the MACTE accreditation process, in 2021. Her role as a Associate Director of Finance & Operations ensures smooth enrollment on the financial side. She loves task-orientated projects which kept her role as a program coordinator for new CGMS program developments always evolving and exciting.
Anita also likes creative design work in her spare time, especially creating copper and silver viking knit jewelry or alcohol ink art. She lives with her family in the land of waterfalls in the mountains of North Carolina.
