October Alumni Spotlight

Samantha Bittman

This month we are pleased to highlight our alumna Samantha Bittman, Kindergarten class of 2005 and current sophomore of Fordham University majoring in English with a Film and Television minor.



We invite you to discover firsthand the experience that a child has every day at Westmont. THE JOURNEY, led by our Montessori certified faculty, provides an opportunity for parents to explore the entire continuum of the school curriculum. This hands on workshop will provide you with a strong sense of how Montessori unfolds through the eyes of a child who is inspired and nurtured daily for a lifetime of love of learning!
