The Knoxville Montessori School is a nonprofit private school that provides high-quality Montessori education for children from 3 years old through 5th grade. Founded in 1966, KMS is widely recognized for its nurturing environment, high academic standards, experienced teaching staff, and diverse student body.
Following the Montessori method, KMS students work at their own pace, individually and in small groups, using a variety of hands-on materials that build critical physical and intellectual skills and help them move naturally into more advanced academic work
This process encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning, and it nurtures independence, curiosity, creativity, and teamwork skills – all of which are critical for future success in our rapidly changing 21st-century world.
For more information and to find out if Montessori education would be a good fit for your child, contact Operations Director Charlie Biggs at 865-525-6042.

Through my training with DTI as a birth and postpartum doula, I can help you explore your options for pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period, providing information based on the best available evidence from local and national sources. My knowledge and experience eases the process tremendously as you develop your own vision for welcoming your newest family member. As your doula, I can help you find ways to connect to yourself, your partner, your baby, and your community, and I’ll be with you every step of the way, from prenatal visits in your home, to your birthing room, and afterwards when your baby is finally in your arms. Visit my website to learn more.
My name is Karen Vacaliuc, and I am a birth doula, connecting families through birth. I offer doula services in the Anderson, Knox, Morgan, and Roane Counties. I am passionate about mothers, babies, and family. I also have a deep desire to empower women through positive experiences of pregnancy, labor, and childbirth.
I know that the support I can give to mothers-to-be and their partners, during pregnancy and childbirth, can help make their experience less stressful, more informed, more comfortable, and more satisfying. One quote that I have read before stays with me. “The motherhood ideal is impossible to achieve because it ignores reality. Babies don’t need super mothers, they just need good mothers.” (author unknown) In working together with families, I hope to create a more healthy and satisfying approach to family dynamics in its early stages.

Knoxville Moms, I have a gift for you!
Hey y’all, my name is Kendall Shields and I am a senior student at The University of Tennessee. Throughout my 4 years at UT, I have been lucky enough to have been mentored by some amazing women in the Knoxville area, many of whom have had young children. Therefore, I have gotten to see first-hand, how hard it can be to schedule those girlfriend lunch-dates, coffee chats, women’s bible studies, or even just a few hours alone to get some work done with those cute little distractions by your side.
I would love nothing more than to lift this burden for you, Mom! I am offering my childcare services, free of charge, in order to open up space for those life-giving conversations and restful reunions you deserve.
A little bit about me!
- I am from Austin, TX, and may still have a slight allegiance to my longhorns (oops!)
- I just finished up my swimming career at UTK, so let me know if your kiddos could use some swimming lessons this spring!
- I have many years of experience in KIDS ministry at my local churches and have spent countless hours babysitting some dear family and friends.
- I am graduating in May with a degree in Management and Data Analytics, and will be getting married in October!
If you are interested, the best way to reach me is either via text or email. I am available between 11am and 2pm on weekdays and on weekends. I look forward to introducing myself more formally as well as meeting your little ones soon :).
