Salutations my students and parents!
My name is Kelli Heard, and I teach 8th grade Science to our NMS Stars! I have been teaching for twelve 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 family.
Welcome, class of 2026!
