Preschool Teachers

Nakiesha Coleman-Colby

HELLO! My name is Nakiesha Coleman-Colby and I’m the pre-school teacher here at Imagine.  I was born in Dayton, Ohio but I have lived in Colorado Springs, Colorado for 25 years.  I graduated from High School in 1995.  I have been in the Early Childhood field for over 20 years.  I started in the child care field as a teachers’ aide working with three to four year olds then worked my way up to a school-age teacher.  After a few years I realized that I missed working with younger children so I became a pre-k teacher (again).  I am currently enrolled at Pikes Peak Community College taking classes in Early Childhood Education for my Director’s Certificate.  I am excited to have the opportunity to continue to work with children and be a part of the Indigo Ranch Classical Academy family.

I’m married and we have a son who graduated from High School in 2017.  I’m a big sports fan for the Denver Broncos, Colorado Rockies, and the Colorado Avalanche.  In the spare time I enjoy going to the movies, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.

Michele Lucero

Hello! I am Michele Lucero the Director and Teacher in the Preschool program here at Imagine. I have been in the Early Childhood Education field for 29 years. I started as a licensed in-home provider then moved on to child care centers as a teacher working with all ages groups of children. After 17 years of teaching and more education I became a Director of large child care centers. I held this position for over 8 years then realized I missed being with the children. That led me to my position here at Imagine. I am extremely happy to be back with the children and part of the Imagine team.

I am originally from California but I have been living on Colorado Springs since 1996. I have two grown children, a son and daughter in law and four grandchildren who all live in Colorado. Family time is my favorite time!

Working with children is a new adventure each day and I wouldn’t wan it any other way!
