Speech Language

Tammy Lehn, M.S., CCC-SLP/L


As a child, I was in speech therapy.  My teacher’s name was Miss Siss and you guessed it, I couldn’t say my “s”s!  I graduated from speech when I could say her name.  To this day, my students enjoy looking at my childhood speech books and are encouraged when they see ALL the sounds that  Mrs. Lehn struggled with.  I always say, “We’re all working on something ~ it’s all good!” In 1994, I graduated from Douglass College at Rutgers University with a BA in Speech and Hearing Sciences, and in 1997 earned my Masters of Science degree in Speech Language Pathology from William Paterson University.  I hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA) and a Speech Language Pathology license from the State of Colorado.  I have served as a Speech Language Pathologist in the following settings: private school for deaf and hard of hearing students, VA Hospital, rehab and skilled nursing facilities, private practice, therapy clinics, home health, a school district in New Jersey specializing in Autism, and for the past 15 years, I have served as an SLP here at Soaring Hawk Elementary in Douglas County School District.  This year, I am at SHE part time, serving students in Kindergarten and in our SSN program. My husband, Chris, and I have two grown sons, Josh and Jesse, who both attended Soaring Hawk and have since graduated college.  When I'm not at SHE, I am working alongside my family at our food company, Yumbana Gluten Free.  Looking forward to a great year ahead.   I can be reached best via email at [email protected].

Hello! My name is Amanda Gutiérrez, and I am a full-time speech-language pathologist (SLP) at Soaring Hawk Elementary. I currently live in Parker with my husband and son, but I am originally from Wisconsin. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Writing-Intensive English and Social Welfare & Justice from Marquette University in Milwaukee. 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 with AmeriCorps/Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest in Oregon. I ended up staying in Oregon for a couple more years, working for a non-profit organization, until I figured out I wanted to be a SLP! This new path brought about a move, and I earned my Master's degree from the University of Northern Colorado in 2018. Now in my fourth year as a SLP at SHE, I feel so lucky to work with such a dedicated and talented team and be part of this incredibly generous and supportive school community. I love helping my students develop the skills and confidence to more fully express and share their stories, ideas, thoughts, and opinions. I have a toddler at home, 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.
