This is Kelly’s third year at Westlake Academy. Her first two years were working as Westlake’s attendance clerk but she is very excited to be transitioning into a new position assisting Kindergarten teachers with small group lessons and various tasks in and out of the classroom. Kelly has a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Her love of science gave her great experience in a food science laboratory but found that her true passion is working with children. She taught preschool for 2 years at Chapel Hill Children’s School and has worked extensively with developmentally disabled children and adults in various settings. Kelly has been married 26 years and has four children. Her oldest three children are graduates of Westlake Academy and now attending college at US Air Force Academy and Texas A&M. Her youngest daughter, Ryann, is currently in Ms. Titus’ 4th grade class! Kelly enjoys outdoor activities, running, baking, arts and crafts and spending time with family!
