Kelly Williams

PreKindergarten Teacher


Hello, my name is Kelly Williams!

Originally from Lexington, OH, I came to GCS in 2012 because of prayer - I was at a job that was all about the numbers and evaluating what children would to instead of what children could do and annotating every child's move, losing focus on the reason children are there. So I prayed for God to guide me through the steps in life that he wanted to take me to.
