Head of School

AMS Montessori Primary Teaching Credential
Bixby School since 2017
I was born into a family of educators with a profound belief that education is the best means of creating a better future for humanity. I feel honored to work with children, families, and teachers each day.
Prior to my headship at Bixby, I was Head of School at Montessori School of Evergreen from 2007-2015. In addition to my experience as a school administrator, I have worked as a researcher at Erickson Institute in Chicago, as the Site Director of the Boys and Girls Club, as well as an early childhood teacher.
I earned a bachelor of arts degree in History (magna cum laude and awarded History Student of the Year) from the University of Colorado, a master of arts degree in Social Science from the University of Chicago, and my AMS Primary Teaching Credential at the Montessori Education Center of the Rockies. I have served on the ACIS Board of Directors where I chaired the Membership Committee, and also on the Governance Board of the Stuart Women’s Club.
I consider myself first and foremost a teacher and I love to empower children and adults in their growth. I am married to John Suitor, II, and I have a clever 10-year old daughter named Eva. Experiencing wonder through Eva’s eyes, traveling, trying new things, reading, running, cooking, hiking, and spending time in nature complete my life.
