Krystal Martin | Lead Teacher Grasshopper Room - 3 Year Old Preschool
I like being fun and creative with kids and coming up with new ideas. I enjoy spending time with my family and really enjoy animals. I have a dog named Tommy and a cat named Kiki. I live in Ames with my husband, Cole, and my son, Tony. In my free time I enjoy bike riding with my husband. My parents live in Ames and I have one brother.
I love that I never know what to expect with children. Watching them explore and learn new things is so exciting to me!
I graduated from Iowa State University in May with a major in Child Adult an Family Services with a child option. I have worked in childcare settings in the past and am excited for my time here at LilyPad!
Marianne Hart | Lead Teacher, Butterfly Room- 3 Year Old Preschool
I just graduated from Iowa State in May with a degree in Child, Adult & Family Services.
My favorite part about working with children is the special bond and connection I make with each and every one of them. I adore all the silly things they say and watching them develop and grow - it's so rewarding!
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family. Some of my favorite things to do are sing, bake, and stay active.
