Zoe Paul

Zoe Paul is a Montessori educator, parent coach, and educational entrepreneur based in San Francisco.

Zoe moved to the Bay Area in 2015 with the goal of opening a preschool when she was struck by the fact that such an international, diverse, and vibrant community lacked sufficient childcare. She founded Sage Montessori, a home program, in 2017 from where she really began to understand the needs and goals of families within the community.

Zoe received her Association Montessori Internationale Diploma from the Montessori Institute of San Diego for children 0-6. Fun fact: Zoe was voted the most likely to have “the most Montessori-Montessori school” among her classmates! Zoe began her Montessori teaching career in Morocco where she was part of the founding team at the first Montessori school in the country. Later she moved to Russia where she helped design and found 2 Montessori schools which are still operating successfully today, and was a lead infant guide at LePort Montessori here in San Francisco. Zoe is also the founder of a non-profit organization called SAMEAA whose mission is to bring the Montessori method to children in post-conflict zones throughout the world.
