After completing my Bachelor’s Degree in middle school education from LeTourneau University, I started my first teaching job at Pine Tree where I taught 5th grade for 4 years. During that time I earned a Master’s in Educational Leadership from The University of Texas at Tyler. My 5th and 6th years of teaching were at The University of Texas at Tyler Innovation Academy where I taught English, language arts and reading to 3rd through 7th graders using project based learning. I now teach 6th grade English, language arts and reading at White Oak. My husband, Terrence Kelley, is a mechanical engineer. We have been married 11 years and have a sweet 1 year old daughter and 6 year old bearded dragon.
I love my job, the kids I’m privileged to work with and cannot imagine doing anything else with my life.
