My name is Cecilia Robinson-Vanhoy, and I am excited to be the principal of J. Allen Axson Montessori School.
I have been a resident of Jacksonville, Florida since my dad retired from the United States Air Force when I was fifteen. I am married to my husband, Joe Vanhoy and have a beautiful daughter named Kimmie. Kimmie has been a Montessori student since she was three.
We love animals at my house. Currently we have I dog named, Azzy, two cats, Maxi and Charlie and Mojo the Bearded Dragon who lives at Axson and comes home on holidays to my house.
I was a successful DCPS teacher for thirteen years before I became an Assistant Principal and Principal. I taught Montessori 3-6 for seven years before becoming an administrator. I currently have a BA in Education, a MA in Elementary Education, and an Eds in Educational Leadership. I hold certifications in: Emotionally Handicapped, Gifted, Elementary Education, Educational Leadership and Principal All Levels. I hold American Montessori Society(AMS), Early Childhood Credential in ages 3-6 from North Carolina Teacher Education Program. I also have AMS Elementary 1 & 2 Credential from Barry University Montessori Teacher Education Program for 6-9 and 9-12.
I am committed to the Montessori Method and philosophy. Our program is unique. We are a successful Magnet Program and have been an A school since the school opened. I look forward to leading the school into another great year. COVID has presented unique challenges, but I will continue to make sure all staff and students are safe while on campus.
