MEET OUR MAKERS
I am a fourth generation educator and have spent the last 22 years as a teacher, administrator and District leader. I completed my Master’s degree with the University of Colorado at Denver in Administration, Leadership and Policy where I moved on to administration in schools overseas at the American International School of Costa Rica and in Colorado School Districts. I design the Learning Adventures that truly ignite your child’s desire to learn.
I have spent my entire professional career (33+ years) working in schools as a teacher, administrator and school District leader. I am committed to the success of kids, academically, socially, and emotionally. I have worked with parents for many years answering questions they may have about their child’s education and coaching them to successful navigation of school district policy and school procedures. I completed my Master’s degree with the University of Colorado at Denver in Administration, Leadership and Policy Studies.

Hello my name is Louma. I grew up a little bit everywhere. Japan, France, England and America... Now I live in Denver and I love making! I just went to school learning woodworking, woodturning, how to use the laser cutter and engraver but I have many interests! I learned over the years how to make props for the screen, model making, ceramics, sewing, drawing, graphic design, origami and how to use CAD softwares... I love teaching what I know and learning from each other! As a team we can push the boundaries of inventing and come up with incredible ideas!
