Jay Gerwe joined Harmony in the Spring of 2014. He is currently our Lead Oasis Guide for our aftercare program. While working towards his B.A. in Elementary Education from Indiana University he studied abroad in New Zealand and had the opportunity to visit a nearby Montessori school and saw all the amazing learning and tools a Montessori environment offered and instantly fell in love! Jay moved to Portland and received his AMI Primary diploma and Master’s from Loyola, MD in 2007. He has worked in various Montessori schools since 2004 and is super excited to be a part of Harmony as we continue to grow. Jay’s hobbies and interests include all the amazing things the Pacific Northwest offers: camping, hiking, Timbers, Blazers, local music, brewing craft beers, walking the dog with his wonderful wife, surfing, and continuing to learn.
