3's & 4's Co-op Lead Preschool Teacher
269/649-2343 ext. 106
Hello! My name is Kelli Young and I am the director at Heart & Hands as well as the lead teacher of the 3's and 4's Co-op classes. I graduated from Western Michigan University in 2013 with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I hold a teaching certificate with an Early Childhood endorsement. I love being part of a co-op program where I can work alongside parents and families to ensure their child is successful while they learn and discover so many new things about our world and themselves. I am passionate about developing relationships with my students so they feel loved and confident in our classroom! Preschool quickly became my favorite age group to teach because we have the privilege of being their first taste of formal education. It is so much fun and a true pleasure to be their teacher! I live in portage with my husband Tyler and two daughters, Penelope and Eloise. I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach, reading, and being outside.
