Words from Trisha Moquino...

Dear Keres Children’s Learning Center Family, Friends, Community!


We made it! We made it through school year of 2020–2021—year of virtual learning due to the pandemic.  Many people focus on what learning children have “lost.” We choose to focus on what different ways children learned and the fact that children continue to self-construct and learn no matter what.


We are grateful for all our staff and the ways they all did their best to continue to serve KCLC’s mission and our students and families.  Big shout out to our Language and Culture teachers—our Elders—for inspiring us with their persistence to learn Zoom for virtual learning. We are grateful to our classroom teachers in both the Keres Primary (3- to 6-year olds) and the Elementary Dual Language (6- to 12-year-olds) classroom for all the creative ways they engaged children. Virtual learning was hard, but we did it. Of course, we are especially proud of our children for showing up every day, and we are so grateful to their parents and families for supporting them in their virtual home settings. THANK YOU! We are grateful to families for sharing feedback with us about KCLC’s virtual program—where we need to improve and where we were glowing with regard to the rigor, consistency, and richness of the learning KCLC was able to provide.

Keres Children’s Learning Center (KCLC) would like to welcome Eileen Povi Mitchell as the new program assistant for the Indigenous Montessori Institute (IMI). We are excited that the Director of the Indigenous Montessori Institute, Tracey Cordero, will have assistance for all the good work of IMI. We look forward to embracing Povi into our KCLC family. 🧡
