Duren Walters

Children's House Assistant

My name is Duren Walters and I am a Pre-K teacher. I have worked with children for 18 years in Colorado. I worked at Mile High Early Learning Center-Montessori Inspired for the last five years. Now I am looking forward to working with school-age children in Golden.


As an educator, I like to be involved with community activities, to learn from others, and to share my experiences with others. Also, I enjoy hiking, practicing yoga, reading, crafts, and traveling. I love to spend quality time with my family and friends.


I am from Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. I grew up there and had a career there at the National University. English is my third language and I encourage bilingual education and multiculturalism. I am excited to work at Compass Montessori School. It is a unique environment to work. I like to observe children‘s learning and growth and focus on their needs while supporting them, including their parents and families.
