MKH takes a lot of pride in our dedicated and experienced staff. Continuity is key to the trust and safe feeling of a classroom. Teachers are here to make a difference. Each teacher takes pride in their classroom and their children enrolled. As we continue to make quality improvements within the classroom, it shows once your child has graduated and moved forward into Kindergarten. We have a proven record that our children are Kinder/1st grade Ready, every year.
Kelli Sheldon, Owner, Director and Teacher of MKH Preschool Academy, 25 years
The past 25 years has taught me so much about children, development, culture and families. My most important lesson has been how growth is important at any age. In order to achieve any thing you must continue to grow. Education is on going to evolve, so I must educate myself, so I can continue to educate. Every day is a journey and I love walking down that road. Welcome to MKH!

Ms. Tamara Fant, Toddler Teacher, 5 Years
Originally from Southern California, I have been married for 26 years and have 4 children and 2 grandchildren. We moved to Rio Rancho, NM in 1998. I was a stay home more for 20+ years before coming to MKH. I started as a breaker then moved in to the the infant room where I was for 3 years. I currently work in the toddler room. I enjoy every aspect of teaching and realized in the 4 years I have been here the children teach me as much as I ever taught them. I am dedicated to the social/emotional aspect of early childhood development and make it my goal to give the best care and love they all deserve. I am very proud of my little ones everyday and am so blessed to be a part of their life. The opportunity I have been given to watch them grow is the best part and we have a great team here.
Shelia McClure, Toddler/Early Preschool Teacher, 3 years
I have lived in New Mexico for 40 years but I am originally from Texas. I have twin sons who are both married, so I am looking forward to grandchildren hopefully in the near future. I have been in the childcare field for 28 years and have been at Ms. Kelli’s House for 4 years now. I have worked with the toddlers all the way up to the preschool classroom. Currently, I have the privilege of working with the 2-3 years olds in the Early Preschool Class. I absolutely love being with this age. I enjoy the journey everyday and the fact that I get to be a part of each child’s day. From learning their colors and communicating with each other to sign language and potty victories…each day is a blessing. This age goes at their pace and each skill learned, is a step I thoroughly enjoy.
