About Us

Meg-headshotMeg Broz is one of the many alumni of Near North Montessori that couldn’t stay away from the school for too long; she has been teaching in the junior high at NNM for 9 years.

She is the Programming Director for the Montessori and the City Adolescent Conference (MACA Con), and a member of NNM’s Diversity Advocacy Team.

She is the mom of a sweet and toddlery toddler, Olive, who will be attending NNM in Vinkle & Jennifer’s class this year! Ms. Broz can be reached at: mbroz@nnms.org

Gregg Sparks has taught at Near North Montessori for the past 11 years at a variety of levels, the last five in the 12-14 program.

This is Meg and Gregg’s 6th year in the classroom together. They are on a mission to keep a calm and laid back, yet engaging and productive atmosphere going in the class all year long.
