Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Kelsey Spear and I am the new General Ed. 2nd Grade teacher! I was born and raised in Puyallup, Washington (state not capital!). I moved here to Arizona my junior year of high school and studied at Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education.
I am newly graduated and am excited to start my second year teaching at Desert Willow Elementary with all of the wonderful students and faculty. I have experience interning and student teaching in many different grade levels, but started my love for teaching in a 4th grade classroom I interned in high school. My first year here at DWES and in my teaching career was in 4th grade, however my student teaching in college was in 2nd grade. I have come full circle since then and I am excited to help your student achieve their academic goals.
In my spare time, I love trying new things! Whether it is going on an adventure or trying something new at a restaurant, I like to keep my mind open to new experiences and possibilities. I am a big fan of sports (Seattle anything!) so talk to me about your favorite sports team next time you see me!
I am very excited to start the year as a first year teacher and will be striving to teach you, the student, as much as I can through many different ways that we will learn together!
