Dr. Roemer joined Twin Parks Montessori Schools in August 2004, with 21 years experience as a Montessori teacher, director, consultant, and past President of the AMS board of Directors (AMS). She was a charter member of the AMS School Accreditation Commission, and chaired the Commission for four years.
Dr. Roemer earned a Doctorate in education from the University of Memphis; a Masters degree in Montessori education from Christian Brothers University in Memphis; and a Bachelor’s degree in anthropology from Temple University in Philadelphia. She is certified as an early childhood director and holds a certificate for advanced professional education from the AMS.

Dr. Roemer grew up in Bucks County, PA. Before becoming an educator, she worked as a field archeologist and a cartographer. Her work in that field took her to the Northeastern United States, Texas, and Belize, Central America, where she met and married her archeologist husband, Erwin. Her career as an educator began in 1985 when she was looking for a preschool for one of her two sons. After learning about the Montessori method, she realized it was a perfect match for her family—and a perfect match for her career ambitions.
