Head of School
Judit Kedvesi is the Directress at Power of Two. She graduated from “Apaczai Csere Janos” Teacher Training College in Györ-Hungary with degrees in pedagogy and music and has more than 35 years of classroom experience with students ranging from two-and-a-half to fourteen.
I am very excited to be one of the guides at Power of Two Montessori. I earned a bachelor’s degree in English to work in children’s book publishing. As I was searching for a job, I took a position in the children’s department at Barnes and Noble. After several months of conducting the story and craft hours, I realized that I would like to work with children full-time, and I decided to go back to school to get my Early Childhood Certification. I have now been working with children through teaching and volunteering for more than twenty years. I enjoy helping them to explore, learn, and develop confidence as they gain new skills. I attended Montessori school until the 2nd grade, and I have very clear, fond memories of my teachers and my favorite Montessori materials. Walking into Miss Judit's classroom felt like coming home. Every day I experience that children blossom in an atmosphere that fosters independence and self-direction.
Sokthy (pronounced So-Tee) is a Teacher’s Aide at Power of Two Montessori! It’s an exciting opportunity to offer my creative background and skill set to provide a supportive role in the classroom. I believe that nurturing the “whole child” helps children reach their full potential and I’m looking forward to making a positive impact on their learning and growth.
Briefly about myself, I was born at a refugee camp in Thailand and came to America when I was about three years old. At a very young age, I watched and learned patternmaking and sewing from my mother - and then commuted around the city distributing fabrics with my father. They have taught me the value of hard work.
I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design and have worked in NYC and Philadelphia for most of my life - designing for Milliner designer Eugenia Kim, menswear for M.crow, and freelance designs featured in Best of Philly and The Knot magazines. My most recent passion project turned into a small business: a line of children’s hats!
I currently live in West Grove with my husband, son (8), and daughter (6) to raise our lovely family. Together we love being in nature, crafting, treasure hunting at vintage shops, and creating our own ice cream flavors! We incorporate Montessori principles at home to engage in learning as well as enriching their daily lives. I have seen how allowing my children to be self-led has helped them to grow confidently and independently.
