OUR TEAM

Jean Steele

School Leader
Step By Step Montessori Schools of Chaska

Jean joined the Step By Step Montessori team in February 1997 as the School Leader of the Wayzata location.  She graduated from University of Wisconsin-Stout with a B.S. Degree in Early Childhood Education.  Jean completed her Montessori training with Northeast Montessori Training Institute.

Jean has spent a number of years teaching with inner city children in Daytona Beach, Florida and then within a Full Inclusion Elementary School.  While there she taught Kindergarten and really embraced the diversity and knew she was making a difference in the lives of the children.

When returning to Minnesota Jean made the tough decision to move into a school leadership role.  Her enthusiasm for Montessori is unwavering.  Jean processes the ability to see the big picture and is able to handle the multitude of details and constant decision making required for her position. She is passionate about setting all children and staff up for success.  The staff, children and families she works with on a daily basis are of utmost importance to the school she serves.
