Mrs. Kelly Maxey
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year.
My name is Kelly Maxey. I have been teaching for 30+ years! My own family is a TVUSD family - my husband works at GOHS and my kids attend TVUSD schools. :) I have taught all grades from kindergarten through 8th grade in Minnesota, Texas, California, and Spain!
I began my career as an elementary teacher (23 years) and gradually moved up in grade to my current position teaching STEM in middle school. I was fortunate to be chosen to participate in the NASA Endeavor Teaching Fellowship program and spent 18 months working with NASA scientists to better understand STEM education. This experience completely transformed my life as a teacher!
I am a gadget geek, and I like to tinker. I love 3D printing, laser cutting, and building robots.
I believe strongly in working together with the families of my students to ensure their overall success in school. I know that we are teaching/learning in an unprecedented time, so communication between home and school is more important than ever. So please feel free to contact me at any time. I am looking forward to a great year!
