Mrs. Kelli Siegel

This will be my 14th year working in CCUSD and my 7th year as a proud Preschool teacher in our district, teaching and guiding my 3 - 5 year old students as they begin their journey in school.  I started back in 2009 working with the amazing Mrs. Paul as her Kindergarten aide.  In 2010, I started working as a paraprofessional in the Developmental Preschool Program.  In 2016, I became a Head Teacher for ECS Preschool and continue in that role today.  

A little background on me....I am an AZ native but my favorite place in the world is Hawaii...or spending time on a beautiful beach, anywhere, just relaxing and listening to the ocean waves.  In my free time, I am committed to practicing Pilates, I enjoy taking my rescue dog - Sadie - on walks, or spending time with my family.  I currently live in Scottsdale with my husband and two college-aged sons - my oldest son attends Arizona State-Barrett The Honors College and plays on the ASU Club Rugby Team (Go Devils!); and my younger son will be starting at Idaho State University this fall and playing football for ISU (Go Bengals!)  **Fun fact:  Both of my boys started in ECS / CCUSD Preschool when they were 3 years old and had Mrs. Miller as their Teacher Assistant!

I graduated from Arizona State University in 1992 with a B.A. in Communication.  I completed post-baccalaureate studies through Rio Salado and Paradise Valley Community Colleges - Early Childhood Education Programs, completing ECE credits to earn my Arizona Dept. of Education - Early Childhood Teacher Certification, Birth-8.  I am a member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and continue my passion for staying relevant in the field of early childhood education through professional development training, workshops, reading research-based articles, etc.  I want to instill a love for learning and exploration in my young students while also inspiring them to become kind, thoughtful, independent and happy human beings during these precious early years.
