Our Teaching Team

Lil' Scholars University is a Preschool/Pre-Kindergarten Program located in El Dorado Hills, CA. LSU's curriculum is created and based around our many years of experience and education.  Our thematic units are covered through a variety of skills and topics in unique and interesting ways designed especially with each unique learning style in mind. With our age-appropriate curriculum, based around hands-on learning, children are encouraged to explore and learn through their own work and play. As we combine our subjects, our classroom evolves into our exciting learning wonderland! Our main goal for each one of our Lil' Scholars is that they may grow with a true love for learning and the confidence that they need to succeed. Join us daily at Lil' Scholars University's Blog Spot. This Blog has been created as an interactive curriculum where we inspire lifetime learning! We are excited to share our ideas and thoughts with you; creating a world of inspired learners!


MS KRISTIN ~ Teacher/Owner ~ I was born and raised in San Jose, CA, and have spent the latter half of my life working with children. I spent nine years working with preschoolers, both in a

directorial and teaching capacity. I graduated with my B.A. in Child Development from San Jose State University in 2000, and during my senior year internship I had the pleasure of assisting a teacher in a kindergarten classroom. Upon graduation, I was lucky enough to land my first teaching job as a fifth grade instructor to a group of wonderful children. I learned an immense amount from them, as they from me. My teaching position ended in June of 2001 when my fiancée and I relocated to Folsom, where we purchased our first home. We married in August of 2003, and again I was lucky to be able to teach a wonderful Kindergarten class in Roseville. My position ended when we happily welcomed our first child on August 16, 2004. We moved to El Dorado Hills in 2005 and I decided to open Lil' Scholars. I love teaching and it is a wonderful way to apply my educational, professional, and personal experiences. It is also a great opportunity to be a part of our community in both a professional and personal capacity. I am excited about meeting new families and enriching young children's lives. Lil' Scholars University is my passion and I absolutely love watching it grow!


Teacher ~ My husband Eric and I moved to El Dorado Hills in 1998.  We have been married for 25 years and have 3 wonderful children.  For over 20 years, I have enjoyed caring for and teaching children in a variety of settings.  These have included providing nanny services, teaching children at church, and working in my kid’s classrooms at school.  As my children grew older and after substituting at a preschool, I realized I had a passion to become an educator.  I attended school, taking Early Education classes and became a licensed preschool teacher.  I have been working as a preschool teacher for several years now and love being in the classroom.   I am excited to be a part of watching your children learn, grow and develop.  It is a privilege to be joining Lil Scholars University this year!  Teaching brings me such joy and I look forward to sharing that joyful experience with all your children!
