Karen Kelly

Evans Junior High

6th

I was a student of Karen Kelly’s during her first year of teaching at Bloomington Junior High. She was a vibrant, fun teacher who made learning fun. Fast forward to me having my own child in junior high and having that child come home to say: “Ms. Kelly says hi!” I was shocked. Turns out it was that same hip, fun, vibrant Ms. Kelly from over 20 years ago! Still spreading knowledge and kindness through the community. Ms. Kelly went back and got her masters with an endorsement in technology proving that females not only belong in the STEM field but they can thrive within it! She currently works with an amazing team of teachers at Evans Junior High. I know firsthand how she goes above and beyond for her students and e-learning hasn’t changed that! She is an amazing TEAcher who is also obsessed with McAllisters tea - for real there’s many a Facebook status to prove it! :) A win for Ms Kelly is a win for the entire 6B team at Evans Junior High.
