Meet Your Teacher & Back-to-School Night August 10th | First Day of School August 14th
Ellen is very excited to join Free Horizon Montessori after seven years of teaching at Collegiate Academy of Colorado, most recently multiage 3rd and 4th grades. Teaching is a second career for Ellen who fell in love the profession while substitute teaching in her son Maxs preschool class in Fairfax, Virginia. She states, Being in the classroom fills me with the promise of each young person as they endeavor to add to who they will one day become-it is a great privilege to be a part of the road that each learner travels. After moving from Northern Virginia 8 years ago and completing the TILA licensure program, affiliated with the University of Colorado Denver, Ellen was proud to begin her work engaging children in their own literacy and learning.
Growing up in Michigan, she received a Bachelor of Science degree from Michigan State University where she met her husband Hans. A mother of 3 children Cooper (19), Max (18) , and Leesl (15) the Zilkenat family participates in the many outdoor sports available in Colorado enjoying hiking, skiing and the amazing blue skies. In her spare time Ellen enjoys yoga, long walks, sewing, and participating in a reading club.
