Ms. Kelly Amell
My name is Kelly Amell. This is my second year as a Brave! I am so excited to be at Community ISD and am really looking forward to the 2019-2020 school year.
I have been teaching for five years and have lived in Nevada for almost 15 years. I am so grateful to be allowed to work with young people in my own community and help foster an open mindset, an integral part of becoming a lifelong learner. My classroom is a safe place for all of our friends to work, make mistakes, and engage with each other. We work to create a classroom community where all are encouraged to share and help each other when we have a misunderstanding. I think one of the greatest lessons is to illustrate through experiences that effort and outcome are inseparably intertwined.
My husband and I love to explore the wilds of Texas by frequenting state campsites and enjoy the more populated regions by going to annual festivals. We never miss Earth Day at Fair Park or the Veggie Festival at Recheveron Park. I spend a lot of my time taking care of our gaggle of dogs and tending to my gardens. I am a reader and a casual artist (although I lack any natural talent).
My conference time is between 8:30 and 9:30.
