Ms. Skeen's Kindergarten

A Little About Ms. Skeen:

I graduated from Metropolitan State College of Denver many moons ago with a degree in Behavioral Science.  I worked in banking for a few years before deciding it was time to go back to school and do what I should have done in the first place!  I started at Regis and finished my teaching certificate with a Master's in Elementary Education.  While in school, I taught Pre-kindergarten.  Once I was done with school (again) I substitute taught for a few months before getting called back "help out" at the school I had worked for.  I ended up spending several more years there teaching Pre-kindergarten and Kindergarten.  In October of 2015 I had my son Jacob and "retired" :)  
In 2017, I started substituting again, and eventually found my way to Leawood last year, where I was a long-term Kindergarten sub.  

When I am not at school, I love watching Nebraska football (even this year!)  My family has a tiny house on a lake in Nebraska where I like to spend a lot of the summer waterskiing and enjoying time with my son.  I will admit, I spend a great amount of time at the park, Chuck E. Cheese, The McDonald's Playplace, and a variety of other activities my son loves.  When I am not at school, he is my boss :) 

I love kindergarten kiddos and love watching them learn and helping them grow!  I am looking forward to a fantastic year with a great bunch!  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me!
