Rachel is a Montessori teacher, writer and mom of two little ones. She currently lives in Guatemala with her family where she wakes up to the best home-grown coffee in the world. Disillusioned by the NGO world in Guatemala, she began teaching English. Pretty soon she found herself working at a small Montessori school where she later completed her Montessori Guide certification. She now works from home to enjoy more time with her almost three year-old son and two-month old daughter.
