Libby Middleton, M.Ed.
Hello! My name is Libby Middleton, and I am honored to be the lead teacher in the toddler classroom at KinderFrogs. I love what a warm and inviting environment this school offers to both families and the university. It is a place where learning occurs on every level, and individuals work together seamlessly to provide high quality instruction.
I have been teaching at KinderFrogs since 2008, and taught in public schools for four years before starting here. I graduated in 2003 from Texas A&M with my degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and in 2011 with my Master’s degree from TCU (Go Frogs!). My husband, Brandon, and I live in Fort Worth with our two girls. We love being a part of the TCU community, and more importantly, the KinderFrogs family. As a teacher, I cherish all the teachable moments that occur throughout our days. I love watching my little friends learn, grow and exceed even the highest expectations.
Kaitlin Kountz, M.Ed.
I am thrilled to be the lead teacher in the Pre-K class at KinderFrogs. I have served in a variety of roles here, including volunteer and KinderFrogs Associate, and I feel like this is where I am meant to be. I know what a truly special place this school is, and what an encouraging environment it provides for all its students and families.
I taught in public schools for two years prior to coming to KinderFrogs, in self-contained classes and co-taught, inclusive Pre-K settings. I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2012 with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and in 2014 with my Master’s degree from TCU. My husband Zach and I live in Mansfield with our two dogs. We are both excited to be part of the KinderFrogs family.
