Head of School - Secondary Program Last Updated: 3/26/2021 2:46 PM

Hello, my name is Kymm Garcia, I am a mother of 3 amazing children. My oldest has just graduated from Compass Montessori and will be attending the Colorado School of Mines in the Fall 2018 school year. I have a son in the high school and a daughter in the upper elementary program.   


I began my Montessori journey over 20 years ago in an infant/toddler class in Denver where I took my AMI infant/toddler training in Denver. Some years later after having my first child, I took AMI primary training in Denver.  I came to Compass in 2004 and helped to start the primary classrooms at the Golden Campus. Then in 2013, I began my journey of Elementary training, where I spent three glorious summers in training at the Montessori Training Center of Minnesota and teaching in the Garnet classroom as a lower and upper elementary guide. I have my state teaching licensure in ECE with an Elementary endorsement. This will be my 14th year at Compass and my first year on the administration team. I look forward to supporting our families, students, and staff this year.


I hold a BA in family studies and developmental psychology from Metropolitan State College of Denver and a Masters in Education from St Catherine University.  I hold AMI diplomas in Assistants to Infancy, Primary, and Elementary. I am currently pursuing my Principal's licensure.


In my free time, I love running, biking, swimming, hiking, camping and outdoor adventures with my family and my dog Sampson.
