My name is Kelsey! I received my degree in Elementary Education from the University of Utah with an ESL Endorsement and Utah License for grades K-6. I have worked as a student teacher, individual tutor, teacher assistant, and substitute teacher in grades K-6. I have also worked in a day care setting with preschool- elementary aged children. I currently teach a music class to elementary aged children once a week. I am not currently in the classroom full time as I am staying home with my young children. However, I have worked with students of all levels, from struggling students to gifted and talented, as well as ELLs, in a variety of settings.
I like to create a fun learning environment in which students are actively engaged in their own learning.

I graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelors in Elementary Education, elementary teaching license, and ESL endorsement.
I am a wife to a wonderful man and a mommy to a wonderful little boy and baby girl who have stolen my heart! I am still always a teacher at heart, but currently staying home with my kids (while occasionally subbing, tutoring, and running my TpT store). In addition to TpT, I love digital scrapbooking, cooking, exercising, and spending time with my family.
