Suzi Hackett, School Psychologist

1000892It’s exciting  to be a new member of the Montessori community!  I recently moved to Colorado from Ohio where I spent the past decade working in private practice as a school psychologist, teaching as adjunct faculty at Xavier University, and home-schooling our three lively children.  A few summer adventures in Colorado called our family to this wonderful state.  My graduate studies were completed at the College of William and Mary and the University of Cincinnati where I focused on emergent literacy in preschoolers.  My personal passions include running, biking, and anything relating to animals!  Favorite Quote:  “Childhood is a journey, not a race.”

Kristy Lee, Learning Specialist

88660I grew up in Logan, Utah and graduated from Utah State University with a degree in elementary education.  While at USU, I met my husband who changed not only my life, but my lengthy maiden name from ‘VonNiederhausern’ to his last name of ‘Lee’.  I hold dual Master’s degrees in Curriculum and Instruction and Special Education from New Mexico State University. I have my Reading Specialist endorsement and am a certified Wilson Reading instructor.  I love teaching kids and have taught preschool, elementary school, and special education in Utah, Ohio (Go Buckyeyes!) New Mexico and now Colorado.  Children truly are our future and it is such a blessing to be a part of their lives.  They continue to touch my life each and everyday.

I have five grown children who keep my life busy and fun.  I love visiting them in their respective states.  My husband and I are both twins, so in time are hoping for lots of twin grandchildren to spoil.  Gardening, hiking and exploring Colorful Colorado are my outdoor therapies. I love learning about the early history of our nation and love visiting historical sites as well.
