Eve Cusack joined the BMS teaching staff in 2006, and became the lead teacher of the Hickory classroom in 2008, after completing her Montessori Early Childhood Teacher Certification program in Boulder, Colorado. Eve attended BMS from 1979 to 1987, when she graduated from the upper elementary (9-12) classroom. She lives on a small farmstead with her husband, Sam, who is also a teacher at BMS, their two daughters, and Eve’s parents. As a Teach For America corps member, Eve taught public school kindergarten for four years outside of New Orleans, Louisiana. She then served as the educational consultant at Children’s Hospital for two years until Hurricane Katrina brought her and her husband back to Bloomington. Eve has a B.A. in sociology from Northwestern University and an M.A. in Special Education from the University of New Orleans.
Jacob Bailey has been teaching at BMS since the fall of 2002. He has one child still at the school and one child who spent nine years in the school before graduating. He has his degree in elementary education from Indiana University and various other teacher training certifications(most of which are science based). He is currently working on his masters degree in reading education. He completed his Montessori Lead Teacher training from COMET in Columbus, Ohio.
He loves teaching in the school and finds joy in even the smallest parts of our days at BMS!
