Our Honeybee Hive is thriving and making wonderful memories. Our Queen Bees are Ms. Maria, Ms Amy and Ms. Laura. We believe play is crucial for our little Worker Bees throughout their day. In our experience, social skills are the foundation of a successful learning career. Through our perspective, children learn best when we let them navigate and lead in the experiences they have every day. We are here to guide and facilitate their curiosity as they explore their independence. We feel strongly that praising their effort is more impactful than praising the outcome.

Ms. Maria

I graduated from SEMO in 1986 with a degree in Child Care and Guidance. During my early years of teaching I served 3 years on the Board of the St. Louis Association for the Education of Young Children and was a speaker at many of our local conferences. I joined the KECC team in 2003 and have been a teacher in the Penguin, Turtle, Elephant, Bear and now the Honeybee Room. My husband and I were married in 2004 and are proud parents of 2 fur babies, a German Shepard mix and a Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier mix. In my free time, I love traveling and spending time with my family and friends.
