Say Hello To Our Educators
Welcome to Keyport Kid Academy! Here we believe that our program is only as good as the people who staff it, and we have worked hard to bring the very best people to our school.
At Keyport Kids Academy, we employ highly trained and passionate teachers who really want to help children succeed. Our engaging lessons are dynamic and interactive, and each classroom is built to age-appropriate specifications, with child-sized furniture and materials that help children feel comfortable and successful. Our goal is to foster well-rounded children, and we do that by introducing manners and a respect for others to all of our lessons.
Here is a little bit more information about the team who will be caring for your child:
Piper has always had a love for children and education. It all started in high school when Piper volunteered at UMDNJ hospital caring for newborn boarder babies. Upon graduation she started her teaching career in 2002 as a head teacher at Friendly Fuld daycare. Since then she has been working for Plainfield public schools and then to Newark Public Schools where she is working on her 14th year as an elementary teacher. Within these 14 years, Piper has taught children ages 3 to 13. Piper graduated from Delaware State University with her Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education and was very involved with reading groups, tutoring programs, and working for an on campus elementary school. Her goal is to continue helping children prepare academically, socially and emotionally for their future. In order to accomplish these goals Piper continued her education and received her Masters Degree in Administration and Supervision from Seton Hall University. Piper believes that Education is the key to success in life, and teachers make a lasting impact in the lives of her students. One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.
