Welcome New Program Director!

We are thrilled to announce that longtime Big Class board member and partner teacher Kyley Pulphus has officially joined the staff as the full time Program Director!

Kyley Pulphus was born and raised in New Orleans. She received her BA in Communications from UNO, and her MFA in Film Making from Florida State. She is an award-winning children's film writer/director. Though she went off for a bit to work in children's television, she returned to New Orleans eight years ago to pursue a career in education. She spent most of that time as a classroom teacher stressing the importance of providing children with opportunities to have their voices heard. She still continues to write, and was most recently honored as a featured reader and writer in New Orleans's inaugural production of Listen To Your Mother. Her favorite writers are Maya Angelou and Mo Willems.
