1st Grade Master Teacher

Enlace is a community dedicated to fostering academic excellence, social responsibility, and personal growth. With a team of passionate educators, supportive staff, and engaging programs, Enlace Academy creates opportunities for students to thrive academically and personally. 

 I feel like Enlace academy found me. Amidst the challenges of the pandemic, I made the brave decision to switch careers, and Enlace Academy took a chance on me. Since stepping through those doors, I've experienced tremendous growth as an educator, colleague, friend, and now a growing leader. Within these walls, I have found unwavering support, and we've become like a family. 

My favorite thing about working at Enlace is the relationships I have built with students, staff, and families. It's unmatched. 

Years at Enlace: 4 years
Alma Mater(s): Bethel College, Indiana Wesleyan, and Grand Canyon University

Crystal Meiller

Founding Teacher and Enlace Parent

Enlace is a special place to me. I choose Enlace because I am able to make an impact on a community that is close to my heart.

Being a native to the west side of Indy, my first home as an adult is located down the street from Enlace, and now current students live there.

I continue to choose Enlace because of the love that I have for the students and families in this community, and because of the impact they have on my own family. At parks, the grocery store, and community events, I have been able to see my son, and now my daughter, play and grow with the students of Enlace. The teachers at Enlace have watched and cared for my own children. 

Years at Enlace: 10 years
Years in Education: 14 years
Alma Mater: IUPUI
