About Kelly's Classroom
Kelly's Classroom was designed and is maintained by me, Kelly Wilson.
My passion for working with children was ignited when I worked in a summer camp when I while working on my undergraduate studies. Because of my positive experiences at the camp, I decided to major in elementary education. I got my degree and went on to teach 2nd and 3rd grade for twelve years in Washington, D.C. During that time, I was honored to be nominated twice for Teacher of the Year.
While teaching full time, I received a scholarship to participate in a Master's program in Education with a focus on New Professional Studies, for which I conducted quantitative research on education issues. After earning my Master's degree, I moved to New York and began teaching third, fourth, and fifth grade.
In 2013 I discovered the website TeachersPayTeachers and Kelly's Classroom was born! Since 2013 teachers worldwide have purchased and downloaded more than 135,000 products from my store. Later that same year, this blog was started.
