Beginning his educational career in a local Montessori school was a key part of Kevin Kalra’s success later in life. He said it developed his self-confidence and ultimately led him to earn a master’s degree in education from Harvard University.
“In Montessori, you really have to rely on your ability to solve problems, to break problems into smaller pieces and how to ask for help,” he said.
About five years ago, Kevin returned to Cy-Fair to help lead Montessori Preschool as its director of innovation and global strategy. His parents, Ann and Satish Kalra, founded the Copperfield campus in 1996 and expanded to two additional Cy-Fair locations in 2018, serving children from 6 weeks to 6 years old.
