Ellen Kestyus, Lead Teacher:
Miss Ellen came to Crossroads in 2012, with 18 years of preschool experience and a CDA (Child Development Associate credential). She discovered her love for teaching young children when she was a co-op parent at her daughter’s preschool. She was a preschool teacher at the Princeton YWCA and also currently works as a substitute for the South Brunswick Board of Education’s After School Program.
Miss Ellen is married and has 2 grown children. She was a Girl Scout leader for seven years and enjoyed helping the girls earn their badges by participating in many projects. And, she loves anything Disney related!
Ellen is such a bubbly and positive person, finding the good in all! Her communication skills are awesome and she is very motivating.
