Ms. Agnes has been teaching at Belden Street since it’s founding in the fall of 1985. She is beloved by her students, families, and fellow staff. Past students often return to visit her in their old classroom, and she is now teaching children of some of her very first students.

Agnes Cross began her career in 1984 as an aide at the Edison Montessori Pre-School, in Sherman, TX. She holds her Montessori Teaching Certificate from Southwest Montessori Training Center in Denton, TX.

Ms. Agnes and her husband have two children, both graduates of Belden Street Montessori School, a son-in-law, a new daughter-in-law and two wonderful grandchildren.
