Welcome to 4th Grade!


    Hi Bobcat Families!


              My name is Renee Kelley, and I am thrilled to say I will be your child’s fourth grade teacher for the 2019-2020 school year!  We are excited to be using the dyad model this year.  This means that you will have two teachers, one for Math and Science, and the other for ELA and Social Studies.  I will be your math and science teacher.  I can't wait to see everyone and am looking forward to a wonderful school year full of learning and positive experiences. 


    Here is a little about me.  I was born and raised in Arizona. I graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.   This will be my sixteenth year teaching.  I have had the opportunity to teach fifth grade, fourth grade, first grade, and kindergarten.  I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach fourth grade this year!  I live in Higley boundaries with my husband Mike, and have three wonderful children.  My oldest daughter, Sydney, is 13 years old, my second daughter, Hailey, is 12 years old, and my son, Boston, is 7 years old.  Outside of school, I love to travel, experiment in the kitchen, and exercise. 


              In class, I promote a positive learning environment while maintaining high expectations for my students.  I will be communicating with you often throughout the year about what we are learning as well as your child’s progress in class.  I am looking forward to working together to make this a beneficial and memorable school year for your child!
