Kendall Gross – Preschool Teacher
Kendall Gross is new to Evergreen, Colorado from her longtime home of Los Angeles, California, but she is not new to the field of Early Childhood Education! Kendall has been working with children in various capacities since she was a child herself and knew from early on that early childhood and elementary education was her passion and destined career. Kendall has had experience as a head kindergarten teacher, a Language Arts curriculum developer, a private tutor (for ages 3 to 13), and an assistant director of a reputable day camp. She believes that children are innately curious and born learners; that children learn best when they love what—and how—they are learning, and thus it is a teacher’s job to identify and celebrate each child’s unique interests and strengths. She also believes that learning is best conducted in an accessible, collaborative, and loving environment which she establishes through the connections she builds with and among her students. Kendall has a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and is earning her Master’s in Early Childhood Education and initial licensure in Special Education.
