Ms. Maggie, Lead Teacher

I began my teaching career in 1993 and started at KECC in 2007.  I have a Bachelor’s degree in Communicative Disorders from Mizzou and a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Webster University. 

I have a daughter at Mizzou (my husband and I are both alums so we’re all about the Tigers in my family!) and a son at Parkway South High School. 

I love getting to spend my days with preschoolers!

Ms. Barb, Classroom Educator

My name is Barb Guess and I’ve been an ECSE Educator at KECC since 2005. I have a bachelor's and master’s degree in social work and a post graduate certificate in PBIS. I’m certified in Character Education from Character Plus.

I am married to Dave and we love boating at Table Rock Lake. My daughter, Katie, teaches at a local charter school. She and her husband have a daughter and son that I get to see every day!  My son, Alex, is in medical school and lives in Chicago.

On a side note, I have metastatic breast cancer. It spread to my brain and after radiation my hair has thinned., I’m hoping it grows back soon! If the students ask, I simply tell them I had to take medicine that made me lose my hair. Please let me know if you have any questions.

I’m looking forward to working and playing with your child this year!
