Chrystal Connell - 4 Year Old Class
Chrystal joined the Leap family in 2019 as an assistant teacher in the Twos class. For the past two years, she has thoroughly enjoyed working in the Fours class with Mrs. Malatino. Chrystal has a bachelor's degree in English from the University of New York at Albany. As a freelance editor, Chrystal's flexible schedule allowed her to be a stay-at-home mom until her youngest child started school. She continues to use her editing skills to help students with their college applications. From the beginning of their preschool education to the end of their high school years, she has truly loved watching how students' minds grow, learn, and mature. She can usually be found at Finch Park watching her boys' baseball games, or at the High School cheering on her Field Hockey player. In her free time, she loves spending time with her family and becoming completely absorbed in a great book! Chrystal and her husband Kevin live in Ramsey with their three children, all of whom attended Leap Preschool.
