Primary 4 Assistant Guide
Hello Athena Friends!

My name is Lynda McGovern. First, I want to say how grateful and blessed I feel every day when I walk through the gates of Athena Montessori Academy. My experience, thus far, has been nothing short of amazing. I’m surrounded everyday by a team of Montessorians who love your children and it shows.

I came to Athena in March of 2018 as a sub, supported summer camp that year, and have remained on the support team ever since. This year I will be assisting in Primary 4.

My degrees in art, from Texas State University, have led me on a creative path most of my life. Almost 25 years of teaching art, via my own private children’s art studio and private schools, has been the great joy of my life. As I look back at my teaching career, I realize that the Montessori way of guiding children in art comes very organically to me. Being able to explore the process of creativity with as many mediums as children can reach for has always been my goal.

Still a working artist, outside of school, you can also find me most weekends crossing things off of my “Happy Bucket List” with a close knit community of friends. We all love getting out in our awesome ATX cultural and natural settings.

Today, I look forward, with an open heart, to sharing my experience and learning more from this wonderful Athena community. Supporting your children, as they pass this way, is an honor.

With warm regards,


Athena Montessori Academy

“Athena is Montessori with flexibility. What a perfect combination of Montessori learning and respect with fun. As a working parent I find the after care options and extracurricular programs to be priceless!”
