Ms. Molly (Mary) Donovan

Welcome to Nokomis Montessori Magnet!

My name is Molly Donovan. I am proud to say I helped plan the Montessori Magnet in 1986. I have had the priviledge of implementing a successful program in Saint Paul Public Schools. 

I am a Children's House teacher. I have a multi-age classroom with 4 year olds and Kindergarten age students all-day. I have a teacher's assistant in my classroom full-time. 

In my classroom, My goal is for every student to feel more confident and independent in their actions. I love art and creative projects for kids! I want every child to feel safe and peaceful at school. I enjoy implementing Restorative Practice strategies in my classroom. Students love to have an opportunity to feel heard and valued. Being an RP site allows us to explore many positive ways for kids to repair relationships and build trust with their peers and adults.
