Hello! My name is Kelsey Plesa. I teach 6th-grade world history and 8th grade U.S. history. Last year I taught English Language Arts but realized how much I enjoyed history. I grew up in Plantation, Fl, which is close to Ft. Lauderdale. I went to school at the University of Kentucky for two years and transferred to Barry University in Miami Shores. I graduated from Barry with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. I am currently in the graduate program at Florida State University to pursue my Masters in Social Work.
My boyfriend and I live in Gainesville with our two cats and dog. We love to go camping at national state parks. Our favorite is Manatee Springs in Chiefland because there is a lot of wildlife. We like to take our dog, Haskell, canoeing with us.
I'm looking forward to teaching history this year!
