Essentially, this is what guides and informs all the work that will be done in the project charter. I also realized that going through the information again... Continue reading

Hi everyone! For my capstone project this semester I have been assigned to a project with the Children’s Meeting House Montessori School. I will be working with my client Susan Maggard who is the Business Operations Manager at the school.

It strives to nurture each child’s lifelong love of learning and honor the diversity of individuals. Being that it Is independently owned, the school is mostly funded by tuition revenue, parent contributions and fundraising efforts. The... Continue reading
