Bart received a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from Auburn University in 1996 and his AMS early childhood credential from NVMI in 2009. He has been MAB’s Head of School, Administration since its inception in 2000. Bart is also the CFO for the Northern Virginia Montessori Institute where he teaches Administration.
Bart attended Montessori through Kindergarten and continued to remain involved with Montessori through his mother, Beth Theriot (Director, MAB). He holds a great deal of respect for the Montessori philosophy and the manner in which the method encourages divergent thinking, independence, confidence and a respect for others as well as the environment. Bart is also devoted to charity service -a fact which he also attributes to his life-long exposure to Montessori. In his spare time, Bart advocates for children and Montessori as a member of the Montessori Madmen and holds parent workshops at Montessori schools around the country.
Bart is married to Jill Theriot, Assistant Head of School, Operations, making MAB a unique family operation. He is a lover of sports and the great outdoors, passions which he he shares with his four sons. His most cherished hobby is soccer and he played at Auburn University for two years and continues to play in various adult leagues in the Loudoun area.
