Hello! My name is Amanda Keplin and I am so excited to join you as your child’s PreK teacher here at St. Hubert! I graduated from Iowa State University with a bachelor’s degree in child and family services in 2004.  Since then have just fallen in love with early childhood education and child development.  I have experience with all ages from 6 weeks through school age.  Watching children learn and grow, the first time a child writes their name, witnessing first steps or completing that milestone a child may have been working on is just the greatest joy. Also, during this time, I have fallen in love with the Catholic Church and was Confirmed in 2007.  My heart and soul of teaching stems from a NAEYC based philosophy and I believe in a loving kindness approach which is why I know that St. Hubert’s will be a place I can settle in and call my teaching home.
