Lorie Mahoney

Hi, I’m Lorie Mahoney. I joined the Compass Montessori community as a parent in 1998, the year Compass opened at the Wheat Ridge location. After falling in love with everything Montessori,  I joined the Compass community as a classroom assistant in 2000 which motivated me to enroll in Montessori teacher training.


I enjoy co-teaching and working alongside a great team. My goals are to guide children in a well-prepared Montessori environment that provides opportunities for developing independence, confidence and a love of learning.


My two adult children are Compass High School graduates and Compass Montessori holds a very special place in both of their hearts. I am also a grandmother of two young children who I adore and enjoy spending as much time as possible with. Besides spending time with friends and family, I enjoy walking about in nature, swimming and listening to music.


Lorie has an AMS (American) and AMI (Internationale) Montessori diploma at the primary level. She is Preschool Teacher and Large Center Director Certified and holds an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Red Rocks Community College in Lakewood, CO.
