Emily Alexander

My family joined the Brisbane Montessori School (BMS) community in 2019. One of my children, Maggie is in Upper Primary, Olivia is in Lower Primary and Mary is in Children’s House. I am passionate about Montessori education and confident that our students are pursuing academic excellence as well as nurturing their curiosity, unlocking creativity, and learning what it is to be human by forging meaningful connections to people and the earth. I have formed relationships within the BMS community through my role as a Parent Representative for various classes, helping the Parents and Friends Association, participation in the Reconciliation Action Plan working group and attending school events and after school hangs.

The school has become a second home for our family and like any home, it must be well cared for, maintained, and evolve to welcome the future. I joined the board in 2020 with a keen interest in our school’s strategic direction. I am committed to prioritising stakeholder engagement to build a strong foundation for BMS and facilitate informed decision making. My legal background allows me to contribute to policy and compliance matters. It is a pleasure to be part of a diverse group of highly skilled directors who generously commit time and energy to our school and have fearless conversations around strategy.
