Employee Profile: Anita Omajafor

Trained as a lawyer, Anita Omajafor discovered Montessori the way many of us have: by following her passions. Her story inspired us, and we think it’ll inspire you too.

Says Anita: “I was coming to the end of my training and I really wanted a school I could grow with. A friend of mine had just started her interview process with Guidepost and told me about the school...I don’t have enough words to describe the absolute joy it gives me to be a part of this team. The beautiful and welcoming campus, the lovely and diverse families and the fantastic staff family here. I could not ask for a better school environment to call home.”

We are proud to have Anita as a Children's House Guide at Guidepost Montessori at Flower Mound.

Employee Profile: Tomeka Bostic

A few years ago, Tomeka Bostic was a mother looking for a good school for her “visual, hands-on” son. But when she discovered the independent, holistic approach to learning at Guidepost Montessori, she felt compelled to not only enroll her son, but to join the staff herself and help other parents seeking a better learning experience for their children.

Today, Tomeka has enrolled hundreds of families into our Guidepost network of schools, beginning in admissions at Prosperity and serving today as Assistant Head of School in Lake Norman. We are incredibly grateful for her passion, her commitment, and the incomparable energy that she brings to our schools every day!

“I worked in long-term healthcare for many years,” Tomeka says. “I was always setting goals for the patients, and so I look at this job as just helping families to meet their goals with providing a quality, Montessori education for their child. I look back and connect the dots and realize now that everything in my life was just creating a pathway for me here. I'm so grateful to be a part of all this!”

Our Values

The core values of Guidepost reaffirm our aim to create thriving school communities. This journey requires curiosity and ambition, recognition of the nature of the children in our charge, and traveling together as a team. The five cardinal values that serve as our own guideposts are:

  1. revere
    independence

    Montessori is a deep, sophisticated theory. But if it had to be boiled it down to just one key point, it would be to foster independence.

    Maria Montessori’s key insight was that childhood is a constant, healthy drive towards independence — and the only way to gain independence is to practice it.

    The journey is the child’s to make, and only he can choose to make it. We must give him the tools to learn, explore, experiment, and self-correct (the “guideposts” to follow), and then get out of his way.

  2. guide and
    be guided

    Whenever a hard problem comes up — whether it’s an exceptional student, or a difficult classroom dynamic — our approach is to solve it with thoughtful collaboration.

    Guidepost schools are hubs of creativity and intelligence; the most valuable resources at any Guidepost campus are the minds and character of its staff.

    We have enormous confidence in our staff to play an irreplaceable part in this great work. And we have confidence that as a team, we'll achieve more than the sum of our parts.

  3. partner
    with parents

    There can be no compromise in an educator's devotion to what's best for each child under her care. Above all, this requires the recognition that the most important people in a child's life are his parents.

    Whatever role we can play in a child’s life — and we believe as educators we can play a critical role, otherwise we wouldn’t be here — there’s no more valuable lever for educating a child than forging a meaningful partnership with that child’s parents. It is only with the parents' wholehearted help and involvement that we can accomplish our mission.

  4. be your
    own compass

    Just as we're responsible for fostering a child’s growth, happiness, and success, we’re similarly responsible for fostering and renewing these things in ourselves.

    Be generous with yourself, and on the lookout for ways to gain energy from and take pride in your work. Be forgiving of yourself when you make mistakes, and supportive of yourself when you feel unsteady or insecure.

    In so doing, you'll not only tend to your own well-being; you'll also become a role model of adult independence and self-management for the children at Guidepost.

  5. be a
    practical idealist

    Sometimes we need to go the extra mile to pitch in for an event, or put together a plan to tackle a thorny student issue. Our vision is not just a dream; it's a goal that demands work — and work that is often hard in ways that we don’t expect.

    Be a practical idealist. Have not only the vision, but also the drive to do all the things that go into making that vision a reality. Commit to responding to the unexpected, to adapting to facts on the ground, and to actively creating the place we want to work and live in: a community that nourishes each of its students, staff, and parents.
