Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Kelly Colvin. This will be the start of my 27th year in education and I can honestly say that I can’t imagine done anything else these last 27 years. I love watching young learners mature as readers, writers, and mathematicians. Watching students succeed at simple or complex tasks is an experience I get to be a part of every day, not to mention, each year my students are creative and energetic boys and girls who keep me on my toes and make me laugh daily. They bring me so much joy.
My undergraduate degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education is from Clemson University, my master's degree in Literacy is from the University of South Carolina, and I am Nationally Certified as an Early Childhood Generalist. I am also certified as a Reading Specialist through the University of South Carolina.
When I’m not teaching I enjoy reading, yoga, coloring, listening to music and spending time with my family. I am married and have two daghters, Abby 21 and Lauren 18.
I am very excited about spending the year with your children. Thank you for sharing them with me.
