Hi, my name is Kiki Delli and I am thrilled to be working with Kindergarten special education students here at Barrett! I strive to be an educator who gives each of my students not only an education, but a passion to learn.
I was born in Greece and moved to the US when I was 4. I grew up in Vienna and attended James Madison University where I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education grades Pre-kindergarten through 3rd grade and a masters in Exceptional Education grades Kindergarten through 12.
I began my teaching career in Newport News and learned so much from the exceptional staff there. After moving back to Fairfax, I’ve been at Barrett since 2012 with another extraordinary staff. I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th grade special education since 2009 and enjoy all the great experiences I’ve had.
My students know that I love my cats (see below) and knitting. I started the knitting club here at Barrett and am so proud of the new generation of knitters, growing year after year. Knitting teaches the students patience, growth mindset and helps with focus. It’s a great way to pass the time too!
A few of my favorites:
Color- Green, Orange and Blue
Store- Amazon, AMC and Trader Joes
Restaurants- Rustico, District Taco and Melting Pot
Hobbies- Knitting, traveling, hiking, cooking, photography and reading
