Melissa Kuhn
Kindergarten Teacher

My name is Melissa Kuhn. I grew up in Paso Robles, Ca where I met the teacher who made me want to teach. I went to college at the University of Idaho and received my degree in elementary education with an endorsement in science.  

I have two children and one on the way! One who will be seven this year and one who just turned three. When I am not teaching I love spending time with my family either traveling, boating, or camping!!

I am excited to get to know each and everyone of my students and welcome them into a place where I hope to make them feel safe and excited to learn!

After teaching at Fireflies for 2 years I decided alongside Becki to purchase the school. I am excited to create a safe place for children to grow and learn.
