About your preschool teachers: 

Erica Kelley, Lead Teacher

Ms. Erica

Allow me to take a moment of your time to introduce myself. I have my Master of Education in Educational Psychology with an emphasis in Special Education from the University of Houston. I also have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Houston – Downtown. I am a certified educator in Texas in Special Education, Early Childhood – 12th grade. While living in Texas, I taught at an inclusive preschool program. I have been married to a wonderful person, Jason, for 21 years.  We have a little girl named Sage, who will also be attending Preschool at Redwood this year.

I became a member of the Redwood Cooperative School community last year as a substitute teacher after moving to Kentucky from Texas.  Every time I substitute taught at Redwood, I found myself wanting to be a permanent part of the school’s culture. Therefore, I am very excited to be a member of the Redwood Preschool Team. My beliefs align with Redwood’s Mission and Philosophy in that each child learns in a different way. One of my jobs as your child’s teacher is to help them discover their individuality while working alongside them to maximize it. I believe in hands-on experiences, learning creatively, and learning through play.

Claire Lovell, Assistant Teacher

Ms. Claire

I am fortunate to have a phenomenal educational team member, Claire Lovell. Claire will be your child’s Teaching Assistant during the school year at Redwood. She was a member of the Redwood Preschool Team last year; therefore, she is well versed on the Redwood culture and philosophy. Originally from Indiana, Claire holds a Bachelor of Science in Education. She will be celebrating her life nuptials with her fiance’ this September! On the weekends, you can find Claire and her fiance’ hiking and rock climbing at Red River Gorge. Aforementioned, I am lucky to have Claire as my educational team member in your child’s classroom this year, her energy and experience will add to your child’s Redwood Preschool adventures.
