Meet Our Staff

Nancy Graham
Nancy GrahamFounder/Owner
Nancy Graham graduated from Vancouver University College in 1992 where she received both her MACTE Montessori and her Early Childhood Education accreditation. She taught in Montessori preschools until the birth of her son in 1996, then resumed in Nanaimo in 1999. In 2001, Nancy moved with her family to Calgary, Alberta, teaching a Montessori program within the Calgary School Board’s public system. She also taught at Calgary Montessori School before taking the entrepreneurial leap to open her own school.

She established Pathway Montessori Preschool in Calgary in 2005, and founded the Woodpark Montessori Society in 2008, a non-profit society that governs the public-funded kindergarten program at the preschool. As her own children were making the transition to high school in 2009, Nancy made the decision to return home to B.C., where she opened her first preschool expansion in Langley. She opened a second location in Fort Langley in 2011.

Sonika Sharma
Sonika SharmaCo-Directress
Mrs Sonika is a Montessori Assistant directress at Pathways Montessori. She completed her Montessori Assistant certification in 2015 but was introduced to the Montessori concept much earlier when her boys were enrolled in a Montessori Preschool. Since then she has become increasingly interested in the Montessori philosophy. This philosophy excited Sonika so much that she eventually gave up her 14-year career in Computer Software Development to become a Montessori teacher. After working as a substitute teacher in various preschools, she realized working with children was a great experience which she really enjoyed. That every child came with his or her own quality/personality, and was so different in nature from any other. The children come from all different backgrounds but they could be enriched by the Montessori program in various ways. Sonika loves spending time with the children, understanding their perceptions, exploring their curiosity, having fun with them and is a valuable member of Pathway Montessori Preschool.

Based on this experience, she prefers working with Montessori preschools because they offer a structured environment where children are able to express themselves and grow to their fullest potential. Shahanas is Montessori-trained and has a Child Development Supervisor Certificate.  Her goals are to continue growing professionally as well as sharing her love for teaching and guiding children while providing a fun and creative environment. Shahanas is a passionate educator who is always looking to perform at the highest standards. She respects children’s rights at all levels and is a committed team member of the Pathway philosophy.
