Mrs. Kelly Means

Welcome to fourth and fifth grade!  I am excited to be your child's teacher this year.  We will be sharing many exciting adventures together as we "surf across California and the good ole' USA!"

I began my teaching career 32 years ago in Downey, California where I taught 4th and 5th grades for 10 years.  After moving to Temecula 22 years ago, I began teaching at Red Hawk Elementary after being home with my boys for many years.  I had the privilege of moving to Temecula Luiseno Elementary when it opened in 2007.

I am married and have 2 grown sons who both attended Temecula schools, having graduated from Great Oak High School before moving onto college.

My passion is of course teaching, but outside of school I have many interests.  I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, traveling, and going to the beach with them.  One of my biggest passions is running.  I enjoy runnng half-marathons, and ran my first marathon last year, the New York City Marathon.  Finally, when I can find the time (which isn't very often), I love to read!

I am looking forward to an exciting and successful year together filled with great learning and growth!  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
