Miss Kelly-Preschool Director:
Miss Kelly joined St. Mark’s Preschool in 2017. She was born and raised in Rochester, New York and graduated from Rush Henrietta School District. She attended Monroe Community College for a degree in Liberal Arts and furthered her education at Roberts Wesleyan College. She received a Bachelors Degree in Cross Disciplinary Studies and in Education. Kelly’s dream job was to always be a teacher! Kelly absolutely loves children and strives to learn new things every day. Kelly has worked at other preschools as a teacher and that career has never changed. She also loves the outdoors and likes to travel as much as she can. Kelly’s pride and joy is her son Brayden. He is truly a blessing from God. She looks forward to serving her community in any way she can.
Miss Empriss started at St. Mark’s in the winter of 2022. She has one little girl named Zariyah that is 7 years old and loves school and arts and crafts. She enjoys spending as much time as she can with her daughter and her family. Miss Empriss loves to travel when she can. She was a teacher’s aide for Rush Henrietta for seven years and loved it. Miss Empriss is wonderful with children and loves to do crafts! She also went to Rush and graduated in 2014. I am so grateful that not only is she a family friend but she’s also a great teacher’s aide and really cares about children that attend St. Mark’s.
