Nixa Early Childhood 2021-2022

Mrs. Kelsey Houston

Ms. Kelsey's Class

Ms. Kelsey's class is located at the Early Childhood Center (ECC).


Mrs. Kelsey has lived in this area her entire life. She grew up in Willard, MO, and now is a resident of Ozark. Kelsey received her bachelor's degree in special needs education from MSU and began her teaching career at Nixa in 2017. Kelsey's passion is working with students of all abilities and assisting them in creating meaningful peer relationships and educational experiences. She believes building a strong foundation of social and emotional skills at the early childhood level truly helps all students in preparing for kindergarten. Learning through play and building loving and lasting relationships with students and families is Kelsey's favorite part of her career.
