WELCOME TO FIRST GRADE AT... 

...INDIAN HILL ELEMENTARY!

Hi! My name is Kelsey Oliver. It's my pleasure to be a part of your child's academic journey as their first grade teacher and I am excited for the fun activities planned for this school year. Indian Hill has been a home to me as a teacher for the past 4 years. I taught for 2 years as a Kindergarten teacher and this school year, 2020-2021, will be my second year teaching first grade. Teaching is one thing that I absolutely love to do. I also enjoy traveling around the world, reading, outdoor activities, and spending time with my family and friends. I'm bilingual with English as my native language and Spanish as my second language. I learned Spanish when I lived in Oaxaca, Mexico in 2013 for 9 months. In the past seven years I've also visited Guatemala and Cuba.These were mission trips to provide summer programs for children.

I am looking forward to meeting you all and know that my door will always be open for you to visit. 

Academics

I graduated in 2012 from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration. In 2014 I received a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Certification from Anaheim University and in 2017 I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Education with an endorsement in English Language Learners. I am currently studying online at York College to receive my Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an expected completion date of December 2021. 


Once a learner, always a learner!
