Introducing our New Staff for Preschool at WKUCCC

Please meet…..

Ms. Christie Kaelin

Christie Kaelin

I am originally from Nashville, TN and have been a resident of Bowling Green for almost 30 years. My love for working in child care centers began with my first job as an afternoon caregiver and summer teacher at a child care center when I was just 16 years old. I came to WKU in 1991 to pursue my degree in Education and Behavioral Sciences, and after graduation, I began my career as the assistant director at Creative Learning Child Development Center of Bowling Green for 4 years. Most recently, I was the 3’s and 4’s teacher and director of Saint. Joseph Preschool and after-school programs from 2001-2020.

I have two daughters, Alyson and Addison, and a 10 year old Cockapoo, Lucy. Alyson is a freshman at WKU, pursuing her degree in nursing and Addison is an 8th grader at Drakes Creek Middle School, living her best life. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my girls and fur baby, sewing, crafting, home D.I.Y.projects, participating in church volunteer programs and worship, supporting Addison in her school and competitive soccer teams, spending time outdoors in nature, and boating with friends and family at the lake.

I have really enjoyed promoting early childhood education and building relationships with the many families and staff throughout my career. I’m so excited to be a part of the Western Kentucky University Child Care team, and I’m excited to grow new relationships with the families and staff here. I’m looking forward to meeting you soon!
