Apple (K/1)

Welcome to Apple Class!


Meet the Apple Teachers!


Teacher: Ms. Charmaine-

Teacher Miss Charmaine

My name is Charmaine Scott (Miss Charmaine). I grew up in Pretoria, South Africa and moved to California in 1998 after I got married. I started out teaching preschool and gradually worked my way up to elementary school. After my first year as a Teaching Assistant, I decided to obtain my teaching credential and come back as a full-time teacher. This will be my 21st year at CMP. I have two boys (21 and 17) who both graduated from CMP. I am excited to be in Apple class and share my love for Montessori with each of the students.


T.A.: Miss Maddie-

My name is Maddie Bendickson and I am a Teacher's Assistant in the K/1 Apple classroom since 2020. I am also a reading intervention teacher and I help out in the before and after school Club M program. I have a background in education and a passion for educating young students. I was born and raised in Minnesota and moved here in late 2019 to be closer to loved ones. In my free time I love to read, spend time in my garden, play games, do arts & crafts, and spend time with loved ones.
