• Ms. Gilliam - Pre-K Teacher


    Hi! My name is Kayla Gilliam. I am going on my fourth year of teaching Pre-K. I was born and raised in Columbus, Indiana. When I was at Columbus North High School I joined the C4 Early Childhood Education program my junior and senior year. During those two years I cadet taught in a kindergarten and 1st grade class, that is what started my passion for teaching.  I was the Extended Care teacher at Busy Bees Academy in 2016 then taught Pre-K at Mt. Healthy in 2017. Now I am here at Southside and I am so blessed/excited to be here! In my classroom learning comes through play and hands on experiences. As a teacher I look at each student and think of how I can make learning fun and exciting for that individual child. I love seeing the children succeed and grow while in my classroom! 

    Education: After graduating high school, I enrolled at Ivy Tech Community College here in Columbus, Indiana where I earned my Associate of Science in Early Childhood Education.
