My name is Kelly Giewat and I am so pleased to have your child in my pre-K class this year! I have been teaching Early Childhood for over 20 years, half of those years right here at Chahta-Ima!! I am originally from New York, but have lived in Louisiana for more than 10 years and can’t imagine ever wanting to live anywhere else! I have been married for over 25 years and have one 18 year old son who is a senior in high school and a varsity wrestler with more than 11 years of experience in the sport! I tell you this because your child WILL come home with stories about my son and/or wrestling at some point this school year.
I believe that all children can learn and want to learn and that a strong partnership between the school and the family fosters the very best learning environment. It is our goal in our Pre-K program to get our students ready for Kindergarten and to foster in them a life-long love of learning. I look forward to a wonderful year with your child here at Chahta-Ima! Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns you may have.
