Rachel Averch


A Montessori student myself, and coming from a Montessori family, I am deeply committed to the Montessori Method of education as a means to help every child fulfill their unique individual potential. I am equally committed to uniting the Montessori community and educators in Colorado toward this goal.

I founded the Montessori Children’s House of Denver in 1991 and continue to serve as the President/CEO. In addition, I am a founding member of the Colorado Montessori Association where I currently serve on the Board of Directors and sit on the Executive Committee.

Beyond the Montessori world, I am active in the greater education community, serving on review teams for school accreditations, speaking at local conferences, writing articles for local papers, and even being an expert for Fox News.

I hold my BA in Education Administration and have the following certifications and credentials: AMS Primary Certification through the Montessori Education Center of the Rockies, CDHS Director’s Credential, and a Level IV Professional Credential. I am an avid reader and researcher and love to relax with my family, quilt, hike, and do a variety of crafts in my spare time.

My favorite part of my job is spending time in the classrooms with the children, and working closely with and mentoring an amazing community of leaders and educators each day.

I love working at MCHD because it is like having a huge family of like-minded people who are all passionately dedicated to the same cause, constantly collaborating and supporting one another in our efforts. It is incredible what we have been able to accomplish together and the deep bonds we have formed in the process.
