Salutations, my kids and parents!
My name is Kelli Heard, and I teach 5th grade ELA to our NMS Stars! I have been teaching for ten years both here in Loudon County and Maryville City. I earned my Bachelor's degree at Tennessee Tech University. I have also earned both a Masters and Education Specialist (Ed.S) Degrees for Curriculum & Instruction from Tusculum College and Lincoln Memorial University, respectively.
However, these credentials tell very little about ME! I LOVE to read! I like to read a variety of genres, but I must admit to being an avid fan of fantasy and historical fiction. At home, I enjoy playing games and just being with my daughter, son, and our dog.
I look forward to this being an amazing year, getting to know my students, them knowing me, and creating lifelong readers and writers!
