• Welcome to Patel's Pineapples! 

    My name is Kalindi Patel and I am very excited to be teaching your kindergarten student at Loudon Elementary! I am originally from New Jersey, where I graduated from Montclair State with a Bachelors Degree in family and child studies and a Masters degree from New York University in Literacy Education. I have lived in Bakersfield for nine years and this will be my eighth year teaching Kindergarten for PBVUSD. 
    Life in kindergarten is sweet!  We have fun, but we work hard! It is a year full of growth! It is rewarding to see students learn quickly and become more independent as the year progresses. The entire Kindergarten team will be working together to ensure that all the students' needs are met, so that students enjoy learning! I appreciiate all your support as we work together to ensure your student has a fun and successful year in kindergarten.
