A teacher takes a hand, opens a mind and touches a heart!


I have a huge passion for all things PRESCHOOL and mindfulness is my cherry on top! With teaching as my superpower and part of my DNA since I was a little girl, I am here today to be…

Your Preschool Teacher Coach!

While attending college, I taught and directed a large preschool.  Upon graduating with a BA in Child Development, I started my own little family along with Lil’ Scholars University, established in 2005. LSU is a large in-home preschool located in the Promontory of El Dorado Hills, CA.  We engage daily in loads of hands-on preschool activities with a focus of mindfulness, literacy, math, art, crafts, sensory, and science. Our learning wonderland is where our creativity takes place and I get to share it with you here! When outside of the classroom, you will find me playing with my 2 girls, hubby, and 2 fur babies.


Teacher – My husband Eric and I moved to El Dorado Hills in 1998. We have been married since 1990 and have 3 wonderful children. For over 20+ years, I have enjoyed caring for and teaching children in a variety of settings. These have included providing nanny services, teaching children at church, and working in my kid’s classrooms at school. As my children grew older and after substituting at a preschool, I realized I had a passion to become an educator. While attending school, I took Early Education classes and became a licensed preschool teacher. 

My passion is teaching!

I have been working as a preschool teacher for several years now and love being in the classroom. I am excited to be a part of watching your children learn, grow and develop. It has been such a privilege to be teaching with Lil’ Scholars University since 2015! Teaching brings me such joy and I look forward to sharing that joyful experience with each of our students!

We teach Lil' Scholars!

What's your Superpower?

We can't wait to meet you! XOXO Ms. Kristin & Ms. Tracy
