Kellsey’s Bio

I am 30 years old and originally from a small town between Carroll and Denison, IA. I am the oldest in my family with a 27 year old sister and a 23 year old brother. I graduated from Morningside College in Sioux City with an elementary education degree in 2007. While at Morningside I play basketball for two years and volleyball for four years. In 2010, I received a Master's Degree as a Reading Specialist.
I taught seven years at Jolley Elementary in Vermillion, SD. For six years I was a Title 1 math and reading teacher for 2nd-5th graders. I also taught one year of 4th grade. At the end of summer 2014, we moved to West Des Moines, and I am coming to the end of my first year teaching 2nd grade at Hillside Elementary in West Des Moines.
I married my husband in 2011, and we don't have children yet.
I have been babysitting since I was in 7th grade for kids of all ages. I babysat all through high school and through college. I was a lifeguard for three years in high school, and I worked in the daycare at the Siouxland Family Center in Dakota City, NE (preschool and afterschoolers rooms) for two summers during college. The summer of 2008, I was a nanny for a family in Sioux City (2nd grader and a 5th grader). For seven years, I helped out with a family of 3 in Dakota Dunes, SD, anytime they needed me.
I love to be outside and believe kids should spend more time outside and doing activities rather than in front of the tv or computer. I think kids should be offered a variety of activities to keep them entertained, but I also believe that some discipline is necessary.
