New Executive Board Members



Teran Frick

I have my bachelors and master’s degrees in Early Childhood Education from Kansas State University- Go Cats! Before coming to early intervention, I spent a long time in the classroom with infants and toddlers at K-State and at KU. While a student, I had the great opportunity to travel abroad several times and study education in Scotland and Hungary. I am currently a provider and the coordinator for PWITS in Wamego, where working with families and my team has been so fantastic!

Krickit Ketterl

My name is Krickit Ketterl and I live in Oberlin, Kansas. I work for the Northwest Kansas Educational Service Center as an Early Childhood Special Education teacher. I have worked in education for ten years with the last eight in early childhood. I’ve spent six years working in preschools but over the last two years my focus has moved more towards early intervention for infants and toddlers. I most recently just started my Masters’ program through Fort Hays State University. I have a strong passion for working with children and their families, helping them be as successful as possible.

I am married to my wonderful husband Spencer who is a lineman for PrairieLand Electric and have two step-children. Ryan is 13 and an active 8th grader who enjoys basketball, being 4-H vice-president, and shooting sports. Taylor is 11 and a very busy 6th grader. She participates in any activity she can and is currently the secretary for our 4-H club.

In my spare I enjoy spending time with my family whether it be playing cards, sports or enjoying our time at the family farm. I also enjoy playing sports and lately I have become a runner and ran my first half-marathon in November 2016. My family is very important but helping children, whether it be working with them and their families during work, volunteering at church, coaching youth sports, or being a 4-H leader, is a great passion of mine also.

Currently at work, I am a master coach for our tiny-k team as well as on the Leadership team. We are working on writing better IEPs and making our program better at all times. It is a great honor to be KDEC Vice President.
