Faculty Bio

Marie Farage (Miss Marie) is the Coordinating Directress of the Spiritus Dei Montessori Program. A native of Grand Rapids, Marie has lived and worked in the Muskegon Area for the past eighteen years. Marie began her Montessori journey at Michigan Dunes Montessori after receiving her training and certification at ADMTEI in Adrian, MI with Sister Anthonita Porter, Directress and founder. Marie went on to help start White Lake Montessori and during that time, she became interested in (CGS) Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. She attended formation for Level 1 and finding great joy and richness in the Good Shepherd program, she continued on to complete formation for Level 2 and 3. Over the last nine years CGS has played a major role in her life, helping to establish, build and facilitate atria for all three levels at her home parish, Prince of Peace. Marie loves working with the 3-6-year-old children who are daily examples of God’s love, joy, and mercy. Teaching in 2015-16: Directress, Spiritus Dei Montessori
