Mrs. Kelly Maxey
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. My name is Kelly Maxey. I have been teaching for 29 years, and the most important thing you need to know about me is that I LOVE MY JOB!
I guess you could say that I have been around! I have taught all grades from kindergarten through 8th grade in Minnesota, Texas, California, and Spain!
I am a gadget-geek. I love anything TECHIE!!! I have always been interested in STEM education, but it wasn’t until a couple years ago that I knew it had a name....or at least an acronym. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math....all of my favorite subjects. A couple years ago, I was selected as one of 50 teachers nationwide to participate in the NASA Endeavor Teaching Fellowship. I spent 18 months working with NASA scientists to better understand STEM education and develop integrated units to bring back to the classroom. This experience completely transformed my life as a teacher!
I believe strongly in working together with the families of my students to ensure their overall success in school. So please feel free to contact me at any time. I am looking forward to a great year!
