Red Class

Greetings from the Red Class! My name is Kelly Rich and this is my first year teaching preschool at Evangelical School for the Young Years. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from SIUE and taught first grade at Evangelical Elementary School prior to having my children.

Besides being a wife and mom, I teach a 3 and 4 year old class at church as well as co-direct a children’s choir. In my free time, I enjoy reading Cozy mysteries.

My name is Kristie Niemeyer and I am the Assistant Teacher in the Red Class. This is also my first year teaching preschool here. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Missouri State University in Springfield, MO, and taught preschool there for several years.

I am blessed to be married and have two children. Along with being a Stay-home mom, I have volunteered for the past 10 years teaching at my church in the nursery, VBS, and AWANA. I truly believe children are gifts from God and should be treated that way.

The Red Class is a 3-year-old class that meets on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. We focus on play-based learning using Centers such as building, drawing, imaginative play, literacy development, music, and art. Cooperation, sharing, and good manners are social skills we focus on every day.

We feel blessed to be able to teach and minister to your children.
