Teacher of a Preschool group (3-6 y.o)
Creative person with a wide range of interests, Kristaps has been interested in nature and its interaction with us since childhood. He attended primary and secondary school at Riga Secondary School No. 6 with a musical direction, playing the clarinet in three orchestras, and later, through self-study and with teachers, learned musical instruments of different nations.
Kristaps, a high school researcher, linked his further interests to a person studying in psychology at the University of Latvia. During his studies, Kristaps started cooperating with the SOS Children's Villages Association in Latvia, together with psychologist Daci Beināri creating a project, the Camp Support Program for Grieving Families, now called 'Kalniem pāri' which over time changed its
form towards supporting therapeutic groups.
As time went on, interest in people and mankind development grew for Kristaps and his path led to meeting Nina Stepanova, who sparked an interest in the educational institution "Montessori House" and to delve into Maria Montessori's pedagogical and psychological methodologies.
In Collaboration with"Montessori Māja" Kristaps initiated a distance learning program in the United States, Age Of Montessori, with Dr. Mary Ellen Mounz, the most fantastic and experienced mentor in the field. All of Kristaps' interests have led him to eight years of experience in adventures with children and families, nature and the universe.
Kristaps is currently working as a specialist: a teacher for children with special needs, a Montessori teacher, a musician, and a manager of outdoor / pedagogical, adventure events for families 'Terra Nova' and 'Dwarf Hunt'.
