Hello! My name is Mrs. Kristen Valenti, I am delighted to be the Center Director at the TKA Greenacres location.

I enjoy working with children and feel blessed to be heading into my 10th year as a part of The King’s Academy Preschool. During my nine years, I have been fortunate to experience being a PS2's teacher, a PS3's teacher and a center director.

I have a Child Development Credential (CDA) and a Director Credential.

I have been married for 14 years and have an 11-year old son who attends The King’s Academy. We enjoy spending time with family, kayaking, and taking our 2 dogs to the park.

Hello my name is Ms. Evelyn and I feel honored to be your child's PS2 teacher for the coming school year. I have had the privilege to work with children since 2002 in both a preschool setting and in children ministries. This is my first year with The King's Academy and I look forward investing lots of love into the education of these precious little ones. I am a mother of a 4 and 6-year-old.

I have worked with children from all ages, infancy through high school, but preschool is my favorite by far. This is my second year with the The Kings Academy Preschool family.
