Teaching Style

Kelly teaches hands-on learning and works with students to discover and develop their own individual learning styles to prepare them for their remaining years and work life. She believes that both teaching and learning should be active processes.

"I strive to create lessons that will teach students to go beyond a text book and provide real world experience, whether that be through first hand experiences, guest lectures, or opportunities for students to explore their individual interests in a particular area."
