Justin Kesselring

Mr. Kesselring came to Zuni at the beginning of Fall 2015. He graduated from UNM's College of Education with a BA in Elementary Education and Social Studies. Mr. Kesselring is a published author, song writer, and soon to be published game designer, but he also spends a decent amount of time doodling and painting as an amateur artist.

Ms. Kesselring likes to quote his mentor Jeff Beg when he says, "Hard work will always outdo natural talent."


Laura Carmichael graduated from New Mexico Highlands University in 2014 with a B.A. In Elementary Education.  Ms. Carmichael has a immense passion for learning and believes in creating lifelong learners. Ms. Carmichael started working with children in middle school as a camp counselor and has made it her focus to enrich the lives of children through technology and fun interactive means.
