This retro line of apparel is a way to celebrate our beginnings.
It was 1980, with Nancy Fleisher as their leader, when a small group of parents met to plan the opening of the first Elementary Montessori school in Nashville. Through many challenges Nancy persevered to create Abintra. That is one of the reasons that our parents are so important to our community.
“Never doubt that a small group…can change the world.” Margaret Mead
SHERRY KNOTT, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
I want to reiterate my love for Abintra – for its vision, for its accomplishments, for its people. Its mission is needed. Its staff is talented, enthusiastic, and dedicated. The children are growing and learning, each in their unique way.
NANCY FLEISHER, FOUNDING DIRECTOR, 1944-2021 †
