Welcome to Kindergarten at Keeling! I am excited to get to know you and your child better. We are going to learn a tremendous amount this year and we will have so much fun doing so! The Keeling Kindergarten team has some great tools to help your child be successful in their learning endeavors.

Defining Moments in Education

I always knew that a “desk job” wasn’t for me. When I was growing up, my mom was a tutor and volunteer. I saw the happiness that helping others brought her and I knew that I wanted to help others as well. Throughout the years, my students have taught me to appreciate the little things, laugh every day, and have patience. A challenging student can make your day difficult, but you have the potential to affect more than just their day, you have the power to change their life!

Why I Teach at Keeling

I was fortunate to start my teaching career at Keeling and it has felt like home ever since. I feel that in teaching at Keeling, my teaching efforts are truly needed and appreciated. I am committed to the growth and success of each and every one of my students.
