TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My name is Nicole Kelley and I have been an ELA teacher for over 15 years. I have taught 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and AP English. The majority of my experience is in high school. I also have experience creating materials for districts and curriculum design for districts. I took a one year leave from the classroom during the 2014-2015 school year to be a District Teacher Leader so that I could help other teachers with curriculum.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to engage my students. That means that I try to make each lesson hands on and entertaining in any way I can. I build each lesson around a standards and incorporate lots of writing and real world experience.
