Welcome to Ms. Kelley’s class! I have a Masters of Education in Classroom Teaching. I am certified in Journalism. I am very passionate about this profession and the transformation of lives that can happen because of my presence at CHS. I am excited about the upcoming school year and the opportunities that await my students and me. Our focus this school year will be learning and developing our skills as critical thinkers, readers, writers, speakers, and listeners. The development and mastery of these important literary skills are not only important to achieving success in the Language Arts classroom, but a critical component of achieving success in other school subjects, building strong relationships with others, and attaining a flourishing career as an adult. Basically, the quality of life you experience now throughout adulthood will depend a lot on how well you read, write, and communicate with others.
