Mrs. Katherine Kelley

Hello! My name is Katherine Kelley/Mrs. Kelley & I am originally from Jacksonville, Florida.

 I attended multiple public and private schools within Duval County as a child, and I was lucky enough to be in the classrooms of many effective educators. My experiences both in the public and private education systems inspired me to pursue education as an undergraduate. I attended and graduated from Flagler College in Saint Augustine, Florida with a Bachelor of Arts in both English and Secondary Education. 

I prefer to engage with students through both cooperative learning strategies and discussion based lesson plans. I am so excited to get to know all of my students and work together to build critical thinking, reading comprehension, and writing skills this year.

About me: I love watching scary movies, reading, and writing. I live with my husband Jake and my miniature dachshund Bowie! (:

I am so excited to be a part of ELA department at HCMS this year and I am looking forward to a (hopefully) normal and productive 2021-2022 school year. (:
