Primary Co-lead teacher
Melanie Horwich is one of our lead primary teachers at Treehouse Montessori School. She started at TMS in 2021 as an assistant in the primary classroom while she completed her primary Montessori training through Montessori Education Center of the Rockies in Denver, CO. After completing her internship and becoming a lead teacher in the toddler classroom, she decided to further her education and pursue a master’s degree in Education with an emphasis in Montessori Integrative Learning. She will co-teach with Kelley Powers in the primary classroom for the 2023-2024 school year! Melanie is eager to put her training into practice and is passionate about connecting with each child as they grow and learn.
Melanie has lived in Colorado for six years after growing up in Chicago, IL. She spends her free time with family and friends, getting outdoors, cooking, and listening to live music. Melanie’s favorite Maria Montessori quote is, “Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.” (Absorbent Mind, 1995)
