Kellie Rodriguez


Hello Families of Building Kidz of Elk Grove,

My name is Kellie, and I am the Director of the center. I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the California State University of Sacramento.

I began my journey as an educator in 2016 tutoring children of different ages. I joined Building Kidz as the Pre-K teacher and Assistant Director in 2020. In this role, I had the opportunity to support the children in their educational journey as well as supporting the Director in the day-to-day operations of the center.

Prior to joining Building Kidz, I was a behavior technician for children with autism. My past professional experiences have taught me compassion, patience, and skills that helps me ensure children are provided with a safe and supportive environment where they can have fun and thrive.
