Hello! My name is Katherine Kelly and I’m so excited to be your English teacher for the 2020-2021 school year here at West Port High School! I have a master’s degree in English from Florida State University and I received my bachelor’s degree in English from Nicholls State University where I was also a DI college athlete and played soccer… Go Colonels! I spent the last two years teaching college English as a graduate teaching assistant at FSU. This will be my first full-time teaching position in Marion County. I’m excited to be back in my hometown of Ocala!
Some fun facts about me: I love being outside and staying active! I enjoy soccer, hiking, and CrossFit. I’ve hiked a few sections of the Appalachian Trail over the last few years, and even brought my dog, Blaze on a backpacking trip with me! I like to make learning a fun, interactive experience, and I’m looking forward to exploring reading and writing with you in English I. Let’s make it a great year!
