Kaylee has had many years of experience working with children and began her formal career at the age of 18. Through studying at Clemson University, The University of Minnesota, and Rasmussen College, Kaylee has gained insight and expertise in both secondary and early child education. Kaylee’s favorite thing about working with children is watching the “light bulb” come on in their brains. “They’re happy and I’m happy and it is honestly one of the best feelings in the world.” When asked if there was any information she would like parents to know, Kaylee said “Your opinion and voice matter when it comes to your child’s education! Never hesitate to reach out, ask questions and provide me with as much information as you can about your child.” Before becoming our center director, Kaylee served as both a young preschool and infant lead teacher and a center director. It has been her dream for a while to be the center director for our school and we couldn’t be happier that she is serving all of you in this role.
