About me

Hello! My name is Coraleigh Stover. I have been working in the childcare field for a couple years and started with Kennedy Academy in August 2017 as an afternoon aid while I received my early childhood education certificate from Washburn Tech Institute. Once I received my certification, I took over the P1 Lead Teacher position. I look forward to working with each student and watching them grow!
