Kyla Watkins

Lollipops Lead Teacher

Hello, my name is Kyla Watkins! I moved here to the Black Hills when I was in 7th grade and have loved it ever since! My Dad retired out of Ellsworth when I was still in high school. Since then, I’ve married my husband and acquired 3 dogs. While I don’t have any children of my own. I am very experienced in this field. I’m in my final year at BHSU for a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood/Special Education. I’m student teaching right now at Douglas with a Kindergarten class in Francis Case. I’ve also worked in childcare since I was 18. I have a passion for educating young minds and I appreciate the opportunity I have here to do just that!
