Ms. Tilly Tilghman

Ms. Tilly Tilghman joins CMMS with eight years of experience in the field of Early Childhood Education. She earned her Bachelors of Science in Human Services from Towson University, and also holds a Child Care Administration certification. Additionally, Tilly is Teacher Certified for both Preschool and Infant/Toddler-age students. 

Ms. Tilly was initially drawn into the education field due to her interest in the way students grow and develop over time, and appreciates the unique way young children view the world and the inspiration they give her each day.  More specifically, Tilly found herself drawn to Montessori education because of the ability to foster developmental growth and produce independent learners. Tilly’s favorite Maria Montessori quote is, “We adults must see the real humanity in children, the humanity which will take our place one day, if we are to have social progress. Social progress means that the next generation is better than the one before.”
