Meet Our Teachers

Every teacher at IPS is not only qualified with a California Teaching Permit, but they all have a minimum of an AA Degree in addition to their years of teaching experience.

My name is Meghan Kennedy. My husband and I are current parents of the IPS program and were immediately impressed with the sense of community the program promotes and creates as well as their philosophy of PLAY. Before our daughter Harper was born I had begun my career as an Early Childhood Teacher in Orange County. Now that our daughter is older, I am excited to get back into teaching. I currently hold an AA in Child Development as well as a Teacher’s permit in Early Childhood Education. As an advocate of ECE, I view children as capable, strong and resilient. Every child brings a strong sense of wonder and potential that drives their interest to understand their world and their place in it. It is my mission to guide and enable these desires.

I am Mari Hubert, most well known as Ms. Mari (pronounced Mary). I have been teaching for many years and have been at IPS for (almost) 4 years.  I really enjoy working alongside parents in the classroom as it gives them the opportunity to see their child in a different environment than they do at home.  As parents work in the classroom they have a realistic view of who their child plays with, what activities they engage in and where they can help them grow at home.  I LOVE the play based educational experience offered here at IPS.  Children learn and develop as they engage in activities that are interesting and fun!  

One of my favorite quotes is by Benjamin Franklin:   "Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember, Involve me and I learn."

I’m Ms. Rena and very excited to continue my journey with IPS as the Owl Classroom Teacher! My family came to Inland Preschool in 2015 when our daughter started as an Owl, and I soon followed as a substitute teacher.

I have my AA in Child Development, I am Certified by the California Commission of Teacher Credentialing, and have taught preschool for over 9 years.

My husband, Brian, and I have been married six years. We knew Inland Preschool was the right school for our family. IPS's commitment to "learn through play" is why we placed our daughter her (she graduated out of the Dragonfly class 2017), and why its been my desire to teach here.

Its going to be an exciting year, and I look forward to meeting all the new Owls families!

Hi, my name is Kelly Sudol. I started Inland    Preschool as a parent two years ago with my youngest Izaiah, who is now a Dragonfly. After long-term subbing in the Owl Classroom last year, I officially joined the IPS staff as the Outdoor Teacher, summer of 2017.

I have two kids, Izaiah and Kai, my oldest who just started High School!! I am an avid softball player and lover of animals. Outside of IPS, I am also a college student pursuing my degree in Psychology and Early Childhood Development.  

I am absolutely in love with Inland Preschool!g about it is so much fun.
