We would like to welcome you back to the 2021-2022 school year. We are so excited and ready to see where this year will take us. We are here to guide students in their learning and help parents.

My name is Judy Faulder. I have been teaching in a variety of settings for 45 years. I have been at Montessori Peaks Academy for 17 years. I have raised three amazing children of my own and many others call me Mom. I enjoy reading, sewing, swimming, and gardening. My passion is leading children to discover the very best that they can be.

My name is Ryan Lowe. I am excited to be assisting Judy in the classroom this year. I am the parent of 3 Montessorians at MPA, hold a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, enjoy thru-hiking during our beautiful Colorado summers, and cross country skiing during the winters.

Together Ryan and I are planning to make this school year amazing. We will begin with building a community of learners and get to know our new children and their interests.

Parents can help best by providing us with information, watch for emails, read all information sent home thoroughly, ask questions, and FTD (follow the directions). Everyone’s first directions are to take a slow deep breath, relax, and let’s have a peaceful transition into our new school year. It is all going to be great.

In peace and health,

Ms. Judy and Mr. Ryan
