As a former student of CMS, Mr. McAlister believes wholeheartedly in the Montessori philosophy.  Multi-aged classrooms, with student chosen work and an increased awareness of student responsibility and self-direction lead to a student-centered education that focuses on the whole child.

Mr. McAlister enjoys golf, boating, and cooking.  He and his wife Kristine have one son, Dalton.

My name is Pamela Carroll and I will be serving as your assistant principal at Como Montessori. It is with great honor and joy that I have the learning opportunity to work alongside each of you. This is my second year in FWISD as an administrator. My first year was at Morningside Middle School.  I am a Fort Worth native who is very familiar with the Como community.  My grandmother lived on Goodman Avenue and I still attend church in Como.  I graduated from Western Hills High School and then had the great pleasure of attending Texas A&M University.  While at A&M, I pledged the sorority - Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.  I am a proud Aggie and SOROR of AKA. 

Teachers

  •  
  • Every student has the ability to learn and do wonderful things.
  • I believe in trying to reach and connect with every student I have. I love that CMS is giving me the opportunity to do that daily! I am married with one son who was just born in March of 2018. I have a dog named Samson and I love to read.
  • I believe that a classroom should be a child-centered environment prepared to allow students to grow to their highest potential. The teacher is to be the facilitator of learning to allow the child to take ownership of their own education.
  • I believe that all children should have an equal opportunity to learn in a safe and engaging environment.
  • I love how all CMS students interact with all grade level students and staff. I enjoy coming to school in the morning and being greeted by a first grader, and seeing my middle schoolers interact with the kindergartners. It warms my heart. My hobbies are reading, going to the park with my son, playing with my two dogs, and traveling.
  • I love the community environment at CMS. Having multiple grades in a classroom helps children develop both trust and empathy, building a stronger community. I enjoy reading, painting, glass sculpture, and hiking. I have three grown children (two attended CMS,) and two dogs.
  • My husband and I have been married for 15 years. We have two daughters in college and a son in middle school. In my free time, I enjoy being with family, shopping, singing in my church choir, & providing service to all mankind with my sorors of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. My philosophy of school counseling includes building relationships with students of all backgrounds, advocating for student success, & collaborating with school professionals, parents and all other stakeholders. What I love about CMS is that we provide our students with a safe, nurturing and encouraging learning environment which supports student achievement. Our students have unique individual potential and are very capable of achieving their highest potential when they are given the opportunity.
  • My teaching philosophy is what Maria Montessori said, "Follow the child," -provide the teaching that the child needs. At CMS I love the dedication that the teachers and staff provide for our students. I enjoy watching historically based movies or historical period pieces.
  • Teaching is about relationships and helping all students learn in their own unique way. My teaching approach is closely aligned with the quote from William Butler Yeats, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." My hobbies include going to movies, trying new restaurants, spending time with family, and traveling.
  • The staff and students have been kind and welcoming. I am excited to be a part of such a dynamic, positive school. I have a daughter, husband, and two dogs. We've just moved to Fort Worth. We've lived many different places, including South Korea, Seattle, Pittsburgh, and New Braunfels.
