Kirby Butler

Board CHair
Commercial Lender at United Community Bank

Married to Ben, their daughters are Campbell and Brittain

Why I love OGMS: Oak Grove has taught us how to be parents. We chose the school for the amazing environment; little did we know the Montessori way would shape who we are as a family.

Favorite OGMS memory: My favorite OGMS memory was watching my daughter, Campbell, receive her certificate for completing primary. I knew she was completely prepared to transition to public school academically, socially and emotionally thanks to the amazing foundation and love of learning she was given at OGMS.

Married to Josh, their daughters are Ona and Gillie

Why I love OGMS: The emotional awareness tools Oak Grove Montessori gives my girls is incredible. 

My Favorite OGMS Memory: Honestly, picking my kids up and seeing other parents and teachers around campus daily is so nice.


Todd Anduze

Married to Michele, their children are Julianna and Corbin.

Favorite thing about Oak Grove Montessori School: I love the way my children talk about all the different experiences they had each day. Over half would never be experienced in a daycare or conventional school.

My favorite OGMS Memory: When my daughter moved on to traditional school, she was so full of such great memories, that I knew we made the right choice in Oak Grove.

Married to Geoffrey, their children are Oliver and Braxton.

Favorite OGMS Memory: I have so many sweet memories of OGMS, but my favorites are the times when I get to see a teacher working directly with one of my children. There is something so peaceful and loving about the way they interact, that it always brings a smile to my face.

Favorite thing to do as a family: Our family’s favorite thing to do together is explore nature. We are always going on mini adventures to hunt for new rocks, pine cones, flowers, or other “treasures.”

My Favorite OGMS Memory: Making a box car with working headlights for the international festival to represent Cuba. My daughter proudly wore it during kids parade and played with it for many months later. 

Our favorite thing to do as a family: Our favorite family activity is to go camping. We love being in nature, hiking and sitting by the camp fire.

Married to Chris, their sons are Miles and Walker.

Why I love OGMS: I love OGMS because of the wonderful community we've found for our family and son. It is clear that each member of the staff knows my child and is invested in helping him grow.

My favorite thing about Carrollton: Living in Carrollton most of my life, I can say there is truly no other place like it. I love the small town feel and the pride that everyone takes in living in this special town.
