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!
