I am a proud Grove Ridgerunner graduate. I attended school here elementry through High School and my grandfather, Earl Kelly, was also an administrator here at Grove for many years.
I recieved my Associates in Science Degree from Northeastern Oklahoma A&M in Miami, OK. I went on to persue a Bachelors degree in education, Pre-K through 8th grade. I began my teaching career here in Grove where I was hired as a Kindergarten teacher. I have now been a Kindergarten teacher as a Grove Ridgerunner for 14 years!
I am a member of the International Honor Society in Education, Kappa Delta Pi and also a member of Phi Theta Kappa.
I started teaching at Grove in 2004 when I was hired as a Kindergarten teacher.
I have two boys that go to school here at Grove, one is 5 yrs. old and the other is 13. I also have a son who 24, married, attended Grove K-12th grade and went on to graduate from NSU with a Bachelors in Criminal Justice. I am very much a family oriented person who likes to travel and spend time admiring scenery. You will most often see me at a Friday night football game cheering on my favorite team, the Grove Ridgerunners. I live in the country on my family ranch where we raise black Angus cattle and have 4 horses. The summers are usually spent baling hay and swimming in the clear water creek that runs accross our property. I believe in family, tradition, and heritage, where it is now my turn to carry on the legacy of the Kelly name.
My hobbies include traveling with my family, going to the movies, and spending time with my kids. Most everything we do, we do as a family.
