I'm Mrs. Bainbridge. I feel privileged to be your child's teacher. I am excited to guide your child through his/her preschool journey. It will be an exciting year full of growth and development. I am passionate about teaching and want to instill a love for learning in every child I meet. Through Iowa State University, I have a bachelor's degree in early childhood education with a special education endorsement. This is my 15th year in the Des Moines School District and second year at McKee. I was a kindergarten teacher at Stowe Elementary for eight years and River Woods Elementary for five years. Prior, I taught Kindergarten for one year in Houston, TX. I also taught after-school and summer ELL programs, along with an early childhood autism summer class. I am a proud wife and mother of two young boys, Wesley (2 1/2 years old) and Collin (9 months). I am originally form Decatur IL. I am an Iowa State University graduate. I have lived in Des Moines for 14 years and love it!
