Foxes (3 year olds)

Mrs. Kelsey

I’m very excited to be leading the 3 year old classroom this year! I have always had a passion for working in early childhood as the students bring so much joy to the classroom each and every day! I love watching them explore God’s creation and see them learning through their curiosity and exploration.

I grew up in a small farming community in Southwest MN and graduated from Dordt University, located in Northwest, IA, with a teaching degree in elementary education along with endorsements in Early childhood and coaching. I have spent the last 7 years as a military wife moving up and down the east coast.

When I am at home I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters, Kennedy and Natalie (5 & 2). We love traveling, hiking, trying new places to eat, and enjoying being home together. I like to craft when I have time, play games, and enjoy a good cup of coffee!


Mrs. Amber

Hello! I'm Amber Yahle. I'm a proud military spouse (Coast Guard) and a mom to one sassy but sweet five year old little girl. Like most military families we've called several places "Home". I'm originally from NC; but Florida will always be called home.

I've spent many years working and engaging with children. I've had the opportunity be a teacher, nanny, classroom parent, & the PTO president. I throughly enjoy watching the excitement children express when they learn and master new milestones. I earned my Bachelors degree in ABA Psychology; which lead to my desire to learn sign language.

When not in the classroom you can find me and my family exploring and traveling all around. We love making the most out of each and every place we get to call home.

I'm looking forward to a great and fun year with the families of BLPS.

She loves to watch the chidren play and see their achievements. She enjoys watching their "wheels turn". Mrs. Denham believes the most important thing is to encourage friendship and to help her students see the importance of sharing and doing what is right.

Mrs. Denham is the mother of three kids. When she's not at BLPS, she enjoys painting with oils, landscaping, and working with children. She also enjoys attending her own children's activities and supporting them.

Mrs. Ashley
(currently out on Maternity Leave, but she'll be back!)

My name is Ashley Cisneros, I am one of the assistant teachers in the Fox class. I was born and raised in Northern Virginia, not too far from Bethany. My husband, Oscar and I are high school sweet hearts and have two boys, Benson and Graham, Graham will be in the Hippos class beginning in August and Benson will be starting Kindergarten. I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology from George Mason University with course work in education. I volunteered for several years in the nursery at a local organization that assists homeless families in getting back on their feet.

This is my first year at Bethany and I am extremely excited to join the Bethany family. I love watching children grow through learning, experiences and their imaginations. It is going to be a great year and I look forward watching your children grow and develop!
