Melissa Kuhn
Kindergarten Teacher
Co-Owner

Ms. Melissa is a mom of three boys. In her free time she enjoys playing sports, camping, and going on adventures with her family.  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.

Ms. Becki is a mom of two boys and also has a step daughter. She enjoys riding her horse and reading in her free time. Ms. Becki has a passion and natural talent for teaching. She treats every child as her own and enjoys getting to know each child and find a technique to help them grow as an individual. You will find Becki,with our older kiddos most the time, but she is often helping all the classes.
