director's welcome

To the Families of Datzyk School,

I am looking forward to being back in the classroom this year, and am happy to announce that my husband, Dr. John Turrisi, has joined our staff and will be handling the school's administrative duties. Prior to working at DMS, Dr. Turrisi practiced podiatry for nearly 30 years.

Although Datzyk has changed in various ways during the last half century, the mission has remained the same: to educate the whole child, and to guide children along the unique paths of their educational journeys. We have important concepts and ideas to relay in each of the core subject areas, but carefully allow ourselves to be directed by the evolving interests of the students in our classrooms. Because of our willingness to be guided by the childrens' interests, we explore the concepts and ideas in a unique way each academic year.

Should you have a desire to contact me, please feel free to do so either by calling 610-395-6344, or by sending an e-mail ( 

Thank you for your continued support, and for your decision to allow the Datzyk Montessori School the privilege of educating your children. 

Warmest Regards,
Linda R. Turrisi, Director
