WMS Alum Flo Miniscloux Stays Connected from the West Coast

Flo Miniscloux, class of 2002, has had a busy 12 years since she graduated from Wilmington Montessori School, but through all of her travels, she has never forgotten her Montessori roots.

"WMS fueled me to always be curious and enjoy life's every discovery," she says. "It taught me that 'work' is fun and creativity is never-ending. Because of WMS, I yearn to always think just a little more differently and to understand just a little more deeply."

Rabbi Brian Eng: From WMS Student to WMS Parent

When Rabbi Brian Eng attended WMS at the Little Red School House location in Arden from 1982 until 1986, he had no idea that someday he would be taking his own children (5-7 student Hayley and toddler Parker) to school at WMS. 
The love of learning and academic skills Brian gained at WMS are apparent when he describes his subsequent educational journey. After leaving WMS, Brian attended public school in the Brandywine School District. He attended the University of Delaware, where he graduated with a degree in chemical engineering. He then turned his educational interests in a new direction, starting rabbinical school. Here, he developed an interest in legal scholarship through the historical role of rabbis as teachers of Rabbinic Law.

Lauren Bradley

Imagine spending your summer thinking about a horse. One horse and only one horse. And, not a horse that gallops, neighs or eats oats. This horse is referred to as “Number 28,” and is part of a collection of carousel horses owned by the Shelbourne Museum in Vermont.

Number 28 needs some work and it’s the job of Lauren Bradley, Wilmington Montessori School graduate, to restore with meticulous detail the appearance of this antique collectible. It not only takes patience for a job like this one; it takes a passion and the kind of training Lauren is getting in her summer internship in Vermont.
