Emily Freer

Children's House Lead Teacher

I am a Montessori child at heart! I grew up in Wisconsin and went to a Waukesha Montessori School for many years. I have great memories from my experiences and am so happy to be helping other families make wonderful memories from our community as well.


I went to school in Montana for Environmental Studies and Sustainable Agriculture. I spent a lot of my time there teaching young children about farming and how our food grows. It was then I decided that I wanted to take hands-on learning into my career choice. When I finished my undergraduate degree, I moved to Maryland to pursue my Master's in Education and AMI Primary Certification. 


My first year of teaching was at a public Montessori school in Washington, D.C. I loved my time in the city, but realized I missed the mountain life. I ended up finding a job here in Colorado and haven't looked back since. 


I love to spend my free time gardening, baking, walking my dogs in the mountains and exploring this beautiful state with my family! I am so honored to be a part of the Compass community!
