About Me








Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year.  My name is Kelly Maxey.  I have been teaching for 28 years, and the most important thing you need to know about me is that I LOVE MY JOB!  


I guess you could say that I have been around!  I have taught all grades from kindergarten through 8th grade in Minnesota, Texas, California, and Spain! 


I am a gadget-geek.  I love anything TECHIE!!! I have always been interested in STEAM education, but it wasn’t until a couple years ago that I knew it had a name....or at least an acronym.  STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and math....all of my favorite subjects.  A couple years ago, I was selected as one of 50 teachers nationwide to participate in the NASA Endeavor Teaching Fellowship. I spent 18 months working with NASA scientists to better understand STEAM education and develop integrated units to bring back to the classroom.  This experience completely transformed my life as a teacher!


I believe strongly in working together with the families of my students to ensure their overall success in school.  So please feel free to contact me at anytime. I am looking forward to a great year!
