LINA TESTA  Assistant to Primary

Assistant to Primary


Lina loves and admires children’s energy, creativity, curiosity and how they improve their performance and development in a spontaneous and natural environment. She started working at Midtown Montessori after her son began attending the school. As a native Italian speaker, Lina uses songs, games and simple phrases to arouse curiosity in children about the culture and traditions of her home country. Working with children requires a lot of passion. Lina learns every day from the children how to sustain that passion and how to be a better, happier parent.
