Degrees and Certifications:
Hello and welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Ms. Kelly and I will be your child's Kindergarten teacher this year. This will be my 8th year teaching and my first year teaching at Deerfield. Up to this point, I have been teaching in Topeka. I am very excited to join the Deerfield family and teach closer to home. I am originally from Colorado but came out to Kansas to attend the University of Kansas and have been in Lawrence ever since. I am a Jayhawk fan and graduated with my bachelor’s and master’s degrees from KU. I love to watch Kansas basketball games and college basketball in general. I have two dogs named Grace and Hunter who are very spoiled. I love to take them for long walks. I also enjoy doing things outside and being active. I am excited to get to know you and your student this school year. My goal is for each and every student to be highly successful.
