What we want for your children...we should want for their teachers;

that schools be places of learning for both of them,

and that such learning be suffused with excitement, engagement, passion, challenge, creativity, and joy.

Welcome to Kelly School!

Happy welcome to the 2014-2015 school year!  We are so excited to have our Kelly family back together! 

As you may or may not know, I have been in education for a very long time as a piano teacher, a swim teacher, a ski instructor, a middle school teacher in Big Bear Lake, a chorus teacher, an elementary school teacher at Magnolia here in Carlsbad, an assistant principal at Valley Middle School...and now, the proud principal of Kelly Elementary School.  My mother was a teacher as well as a principal, so, education truly is in my blood.

And through all of these years, the best part of it all continues to be the smiles on children's faces and the opportunities to build lasting relationships with the school communities.  As always, please know that I am here for your child and feel passionate about providing him or her every opportunity possible for an outstanding elementary school experience.

Onward and upward for this new school year together!
