Rui Kelly began working in the FUMCFW nursery so that she could be with her 11 month old son. “One thing led to another, and I was offered a teaching job in preschool. I have taught and assisted in preschool, been a PDO and nursery coordinator, and for the last many years, I have assisted the director in the preschool. I absolutely love seeing all the children’s smiling faces every day.”
When asked about her spare time, Rui says she loves to travel and spend time with her family, “but when my grandson gets here in July, all my spare time will be spent with him.”
Rui has two children, Eric and Morgan, and will soon welcome her first grandchild, Riot. She has a rescue Bichon named Justin.
A lifelong Fort Worthian, Rui graduated from Arlington Heights High School and Texas Tech University.
