"As a staff member of North Shore Montessori Schools I am so thrilled that you have been recognized for all you have done not only with Montessori Education in Illinois but also internationally. I have worked with you and I know how much the children, families and staff in your schools mean to you. You are always finding new ways to expand the children's minds and always observing each child’s growth to see what else can be done to inspire them. I think more people need to hear your story of how it all began because you certainly can teach us all many lessons – 1) take chances, 2) if you have a vision, follow through,3) never give up and 4) always stay true to yourself. I can say that I am truly honored to be working with you. You are one of a kind, Carolyn – truly inspiring!"

"Mrs. Carolyn Kambich and Tony Kambich have been my greatest mentors since 1999. They recruited us, my sister Christine Kijange of Victoria Montessori School & Kmapala Montessori School in (2012) and Olwal Montessori School in (2013) in Northern Uganda being headed by me (Lanam Kijange), respectively. What a courageous lady she is. An inspiration to us all! (Ugandans). Not only that, her work will touch East and Central African states soon as South Sudan will be bringing student teachers for training at Olwal Montessori School. God bless..."
