Hi!  Nice to meet you!  Here's a little bit about the girl behind The Kelly {teaching} Files.

My name is Whitney Kelly and I am a Texas A&M graduate living in small town Arkansas with my Razorback husband, our wild, adventurous, sweet little boy Tucker, and our two labs, Kate and Rosie. 

Why do I teach?  Because ever since 1st Grade that's what I've wanted to do.  Back in 1990-1991 the PTA at my elementary school had a Cultural Arts contest.  We had to draw what we wanted to be when we grew up.  My wish was to be a First Grade teacher. 

I won first place!  And thirty years later here I am...teaching First Grade. 

That drawing I did is hanging up in my classroom behind my desk to remind me everyday that I'm living out my little first grader dream. 

I achieved National Board Certification and became a National Board Certified teacher in 2011. I'm beginning my 8th year of teaching and have taught resource, Kindergarten, and First Grade.  First Grade is my love!
