Hello, I'm so excited to get to know you! We have a wonderful year of laughter, learning, and most of all fun ahead of us!
Here's a little more about me. Everyone usually calls me Ms. Kelli. I'm from Illinois and recently lived in Louisiana for several years, but I have returned home. I live with my husband and 2 young sons Caleb and Chase. We enjoy having pizza night every Friday and playing family games. We also love to travel and visit children's museums in each state we visit. I have spent the last 14 years teaching students. Half of that time I taught college students, which was enjoyable. After working for a local school, I realized I absolutely loved teaching children, so I made the switch from College Instructor to Lead Preschool Teacher! My favorite subject to teach is reading. I have certificates in Montessori Reading and Writing, Pedagogy and Dyslexia, and ADHD in Childhood. I also earned a master's degree in Business which is why I decided to combine my knowledge of entrepreneurship and my love for teaching to create my own online school.
Here are a few of my favorite things:
Food: Deep dish pizza and Chick- Fil A
Drink: Frozen coffee and water
Hobbies: Reading and roller skating
I'm looking forward to meeting you and learning all about your favorite things. We are going to have a wonderful year!
My just-turned-3-year-old and I love Little Tots! We started with Miss Kelli at age 2yrs, 8 mos, and after an initial assessment and some getting-to-know-you, Kelli tailored an education plan to my little one. We opted for a part-time schedule, 30 minutes a day, 3 days a week. Prior to class, every time my kiddo picked up a crayon or pencil, she would just scribble. No big deal, in my mind - she's a homeschooled toddler, raised in quarantine But literally the first week, watching other kids write on a Zoom class, my child wrote the letter "e," without prompting! By the end of 6 weeks, she was spelling and writing her first name, and I was one stunned Mama! I love that Kelli taps into the unique skills of each child, encourages each one to reach their full potential, and takes the time to ensure mastery before moving to the next developmental activity. We're on days of the week now, and just turned 3 a week ago!
Ms. Kelli is an awesome teacher for our 6 year old twins. She has been teaching them since Summer of 2021. They have learned so much. She is very patient and works the kids if they are struggling. My kids love her! I highly recommend Ms. Kelli.
She is the absolute best!!! My daughter first time attending school and she learned a lot. She was very engaged to each student and I love her work ethics. Even though my baby is now in kindergarten she still calls and checks in on my baby transition and progression. still offer help to assist her on weak areas. When I say I love how she works I mean it. She is the absolute best.
Mrs Kelli is a great teacher to work with. Individualized instruction.
I'm amazed at how much my child has learned. He is only 2 and is able to spell his name, say the alphabet, and so much more! Very pleased with his growth!
Ms. Kelli is a great instructor. She sincerely cares about children and enjoys teaching them. She can teach various subjects and will advance them based on their indivdual skill level. She is punctual and focused, which translates into an awesome, structured learning program.
