Director and Lead Teacher Elizabeth Uhrich’s background is in education, and her journey includes co-founding and directing a progressive school for young children, teaching for 10 years and speaking at conferences on the topic of education.  For her, the folk school and forest kindergarten are a natural outbirth of her passion for education. She holds a BA in Philosophy from Colorado College and an MA in Educational Psychology from CU Denver.  She also currently holds a Director’s Certification from the CDHS and a Colorado Teacher License.  She lives with her family and their small dog in Lafayette, and loves to be outdoors or playing music, whenever she can.
