Sprouts & Buds Lead Teacher and School Manager, Ms. Kelly

Hello there! I am Ms. Kelly and I am the lead teacher for the Sprouts class and the Buds class. Working with children has always been a huge passion of mine so I am thrilled to be teaching at Blossoming Buds Preschool another year! I have an AA degree with an emphasis in elementary education. I started at Blossoming Buds as a summer camp assistant and as a long-term sub for the Buds/Sprouts classes. I was then promoted to assistant teacher for the Pre-K program which was wonderful; I have loved the opportunity to work with kids of so many different age ranges. Fall 2016 I was promoted again and began teaching lead for our Sprouts program. Being a lead teacher has added so much to my knowledge and skills as a teacher that I couldn’t be happier to come back each year to share my knowledge with each student and amazing families. This year, I am now thrilled to be leading both the Buds and Sprouts classes!  Assisting the Buds class for so many years has given me so much knowledge on this age. I love the Buds and Sprouts ages so much; there is so much learning going on every single day.  Our classroom radiates joy from making new friends to gaining independence. Outside of preschool, a few years ago I spent a year as an au pair in France, and while my French is getting a slightly rusty my love for France and all things French certainly is not. My other love is the arts: theater and photography specifically. I am an outgoing and optimistic personality and I’m really looking forward to the privilege of teaching your children, I love this job!
