Speech Language

Tammy Lehn

Hello, my name is Tammy Lehn, and I am one of the full-time Speech Language Pathologists here at Soaring Hawk Elementary. This year is my 15th year at SHE-a supportive community where I’ve raised our sons and served students these many years.   Prior to moving to Colorado in 2006, I lived in New Jersey and in 1994 graduated with my BA in Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences with High Honors from Douglass College at Rutgers University. From there I went on to earn my Master of Science degree in Communication Disorders/Speech Language Pathology from the William Paterson University of New Jersey in 1997.  Since that time I have served as an SLP in hospitals, rehab centers, nursing homes, private practices and home health. Working with the children and families of Soaring Hawk has been the highlight of my career, and my family- husband, Chris, and sons, Joshua and Jesse, are blessed to call Castle Rock our home.

Amanda Gutierrez

Hello! My name is Amanda Gutiérrez, and I'm a speech-language pathologist (SLP) at Soaring Hawk Elementary. Originally from Wisconsin, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Writing-Intensive English and Social Welfare & Justice from Marquette University (2010). My minor was in Spanish, and a highlight of my college experience was studying abroad in Chile. After college, I committed to a year of service as an Americorps/Jesuit Volunteer Corps member in Oregon. I met my husband during that formative year, and we were married in 2016. I spent the next few years working for a non-profit organization in Portland and eventually discovered the field of speech-language pathology, which seemed like a practical way to combine my passions for language, service, and education. This new path took us to Colorado, where I earned my Master's degree from the University of Northern Colorado (2018). Now in my third year as a SLP at SHE, and I feel so lucky to work with such a dedicated staff and supportive school community. I love helping my students develop the self-confidence to freely share their stories, ideas, thoughts, and opinions. My husband and I recently became parents, so free time is hard to come by right now; that said, my hobbies include traveling, reading, working out, hiking, listening to podcasts, and spending time with family and friends.
