20190828 204712Krissy Levigion - Lead Directress

Krissy joined Magnolia in 2017. She started in the Willow Room and then transitioned into the Early Childhood Room in 2018. This year she will be the Lead Directress in the Ivy Room. Krissy believes that her past experiences will greatly benefit her as she has learned that children truly are capable of so much and are eager to work towards their goals. Krissy has been working in the preschool setting for five years with ages ranging from infants to six years of age. She is currently working on receiving her CDA (Child Development Associate) and RBT (Registered Behavioral Technician) certifications. Krissy will soon begin working towards her Montessori certification as well. 

Krissy has a special place in her heart for children with special needs.  She worked privately for a family whose children had special needs. In doing so, she has learned more about patience, understanding acceptance, love, and happiness. One of her favorite facts is that, "children smile on average around 400 times a day, whereas adults only smile between 20- 50 times a day." Something to think about...

Throughout life, we are taught to see things in black and white. Children are able to see the rainbow in everything. I love teaching children what I know, but it is being able to learn from them that really gives me joy.
