About Our Team

Lori Webber

Hi, my name is Lori Webber (Miss Lori) and I am the Program Director and Co-Owner of Mission Montessori Academy.  I take care of admissions, programming and staffing.  My goal is to be a liaison between parents and teachers and ensure that our program continues to build the individual success of each child enrolled in Mission Montessori Academy.

Jetta Klinger

Hi I’m Miss Jetta (Yetta). It’s my privileged to be  the Administrative Director & Co-owner alongside Lori. I’m responsible for things like monthly tuition, child care subsidy and campus care. Of course we all work as a team here so should you have any questions or concerns I’m here to help.

You’ll likely see me playing in the classrooms as I help out where needed, coming from a big family I love to be right in the middle of everything. Class is always the best part of my day! It’s my goal to ensure that we foster an environment where both students and teachers alike can find success.
