Hi my name is Wes Hollamon. I am very excited to be a part of the lovely AMS learning community. I was born and raised in Cary, North Carolina. The mountains called to me, and led me to further my education at the University of North Carolina at Asheville.
There I graduated with a degree in History and Education. While in school I learned about the Montessori teaching philosophy. While this philosophy interested me, I was never able to practice it…until now! I have been in child care for the past three years, mostly working as a Site Director for the afterschool program at Glen Arden Elementary. While my focus was mostly in high school, the younger ages have taken my heart, and I am planning on pursuing my elementary teaching licensure.
I have lived in Asheville for the past 5 years, and have not regretted one moment of it! I enjoy traveling our great state, watching sports, going to movies and concerts, and exploring the blossoming food scene. I love watching children grow and learn. I am truly blessed to be a part of such a supportive learning community at Asheville Montessori School!
