Staff Spotlight ~ Miss Monville

Miss Emilee Monville joined our Key family as an Art Teacher last school year! She has taken our schoolhouse by storm by helping us to create a very warm and welcoming space for our children! Last school year, Miss Monville painted our PreK-Kindergarten hallway with letters, numbers, and beautiful designs. She has begun her pre-work to paint our 1st and 2nd grade hallway as well. Regardless of grade level, every child has the opportunity to have Art class in Miss Monville's classroom. She has taken so much time to inspire warmth, creativity, and passion for our children. We want to give a huge Key Falcon Kudos to Miss Monville! You inspire us every day to love and to create the colorful and vibrant world we want to see!!!
