McKenzie Kubilius

Teacher

Kenzee was born in the Bay Area, but has spent the majority of her life in Salt Lake City. She began working as a nanny in 2012, which lead to her desire to work with children long term. During her first academic year at MCS Kenzee decided to take the Infant/Toddler training to learn more about the Montessori method. After her internship Kenzee obtained her montessori certification in 2014, and then went back to college to gain her degree in Early Childhood Development. When Kenzee is not in the classroom she is spending time outdoors with her boyfriend and Golden Retriever. Spending time outside is what she loves the most (other than coffee, plants, taking pictures, and watching the X-Files). A fun fact about Kenzee is that she usually travels every 3 months to go to Seattle to visit her family and friends!
