Teacher: Kristy Crutcher

Kristy Crutcher first came to Kiddie Kollege in 1993 and worked as an aide and teacher for 10 years before leaving to continue her education.  She taught 3rd and 1st grade for ECISD. She returned to Kiddie Kollege in 2015 and taught the three year olds before becoming the kindergarten teacher.  She is a mom to five children; three girls and 2 boys all of whom are teenagers except for Grant who is 4.  She has always loved teaching and says there is nothing better than when you see the “a-ha moment” cross a child’s face. 


Aide: Marlene Plascencia

Marlene Plascencia was born and raised in Odessa and is currently attending Odessa College where she is studying to become a teacher.  She has been at Kiddie Kollege since 2014.  She enjoys working with children and says it is amazing to watch them grow and flourish each school year.  She says that you cannot be sad when you are around children because they have so much love to give and they can immediately brighten your day with just their smile.

Picture Coming Soon...


Kindergarten is going to have a great time in September.  We will start off with Chicka Chicka Boom Boom week and will be doing lots of really neat activities with the letters of the alphabet.  Next we will focus on the book Chrysanthemum and will make lots of discoveries about our own names.  Throughout the year we will focus on one letter and its sound each week.  In September we will focus on the letters Nn, Aa, and Dd.  We will also be learning about our five senses and how they help us learn about the world around us.  We have already had lots of fun with The Kissing Hand and are sure to have fun with what’s to come!
