“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
– 2 Timothy 1:7


Hi! I’m Kelly Genest and I am honored to be teaching the 4th and 5th graders this year at WCS!

I am a Florida girl, but have lived about half of my life in Texas, moving back and forth a few times. When I began college at Pensacola Christian, I majored in Piano and was certain I would never, ever be a teacher OR a stay at home mom. However, God directed my path through health issues and right into education and I have been in love with it ever since! I completed my degree in Education and then spent four years teaching in a private school in South Florida before moving to Waco in 2016.

God has entrusted me with three incredible children- Caroline, Jackson and Virginia- whom I have homeschooled up until this year. We have learned so much already this year about His sovereignty and indescribable love for us- my prayer is just that I’ll be able to share that with our students and families at WCS!
