The child has one intuitive aim: self development

Mrs. Neal

Mrs. Bes Neal, our Kinderbirds teacher, grew up in Indiana in a small town not far from Indianapolis. She graduated from Butler University with a degree in Early Childhood Development and a minor in Special Needs. Bes fell in love with teaching young children while at Butler and was even a student teacher under Mrs. Foley, our Chickadees (3s) and Robins (4s) teacher.

After Butler, Bes moved to Florida and taught kindergarten for three years. In 2008, she and her husband moved back to Indiana, as they always knew they would come back to their roots. She then taught kindergarten for three years at Hasten Hebrew Academy in Indianapolis.

In 2010, Bes left the classroom to become a stay-at-home mom with her first child. Bes’s son is now a Meridian Hills Cooperative alumnae, and she has two other children who now attend the school.

Bes is eager to help each child in her class to grow and learn, and we are excited to have her as one of our teachers!
