Mrs. Kelly Sanders
Welcome to to my webpage! My name is Kelly Sanders, and it's an honor to teach your child 5th grade math at McCall Elementary!
I live here in Aledo with my husband, Brian, and my children, Maggie (6) and Sally (2). This is my second year at McCall, but I've been a teacher/coach for more than 20 years. I coached high-level gymnastics for many years, and I've taught middle school social studies. Teaching math, however, is my true calling. I have a degree in mathematics education from Middle Tennessee State University, and prior to joining the McCall family I taught 8th grade math and Algebra 1.
I love to relax with my family, read, cook, exercise, and sing in the car/classroom. I also LOVE playing games in the classroom, and I hope you'll hear more about that from your student as the year goes on. I firmly believe that if I'm bored, my students are bored, and if they're bored they're not learning. My students move a lot, we listen to music, and we have a good time every day. I strive to build a classroom community that is supportive, encouraging, and allows for making mistakes.
That being said, in order to play hard, we work... HARD. Your child will be ready for 6th grade math when they leave my classroom.
If there is something that I can do for you to help your kiddo achieve success, please let me know. I'm here to serve your child. Thank you for your trust, and I look forward to a great year! Go Bearcats!
