Our fabulous Co-Teacher & Foodie Friday Chef!
A life long learner with a background in arts and education, I have always had a passion for working with children. I graduated from
Hunter College with a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art with a focus in Arts Education. I have had the pleasure of working in the Pre-K program at the International School of Denver, the Children’s Museum of Manhattan—assisting with arts + food programming, as well as Brooklyn Compass Charter facilitating their after school program.
At Adams & Haack, I wear many hats but I am proud to lead food programming for both pre-school and after school! Part lunch lady, part self appointment “home economics” teacher, part art pal. Every day I get to learn from our students and that makes this job the best job I’ve ever had!
As a parent all you want for your child is to be in a school where they are seen and celebrated for who they are - my daughter came home from her first few days at Adams and Haack and told me that she loves Kaelynn because she "lets me be who I am." and then smiled and laughed. Her joy at going to school has not changed - and I have seen her grow into herself as a person, as a friend and as a member of a community.
My daughter has thrived in the nurturing play-based school Kaeylnn has created. She has gone on epic journeys through the woods of prospect park - landing on mars island and skating through the path of shadows. She has played dress-up, has had tea parties, painted rocks and sanded stumps. She has explored different cuisines on foodie friday bringing home arepas and dumplings. She has learned about perseverance and collaboration - all with such confidence.
I just cannot recommend Adams and Haack more highly - the only sad part is that we have to leave!
