Meet the Blogger

Greetings!  My name is Kelly and I have been teaching for the past 22 years.  I have spent 19 years in third grade and 3 years in fourth.  I will be starting in a new fifth grade position this fall.  Due to the numbers, my school was cutting classes and I volunteered to make the big move from elementary to middle.  I will be teaching math and science.  I am very excited about the change for many reasons, only two sets of standards, more content, earlier schedule, regular letter grade report card, block scheduling, team teaching,  just to name a few of them!

My dream as a little girl was to grow up and become a teacher.  I am happy that dream came true.  I love my job and teaching.  We may have challenging students and days, but every day is a fresh start. I feel that we need to be the positive influence in our students' lives.  I find that teachers need to find new ways to keep motivated.  Blogging has been one of the best ways for me.  It makes me reflect on my teaching.  I am happy that after 23 years I still like my job.
I have two daughters, Hannah (22) and Emma(19).  I am proud of both my girls.  My oldest will be teaching music this fall and the youngest is a sophomore in college.  My husband Gregg and I have been married for 24 years….we booked our Anniversary cruise for spring school vacation.  My family is very supportive of me and my job.  
In my spare time I enjoy keeping healthy and fit, crafting, cooking, shopping, cruising, and planning.
