Mrs. Tania Kelley

Welcome and Hello!

Tania Kelley moved to San Antonio in 1990 and attended schools within Lackland ISD and Northside ISD, where she graduated from William H. Taft High School.  She then attended Northwest Vista College for her Associate's degree before earning her Bachelor of Arts in English at the University of the Incarnate Word. Her graduate work focused on instructional leadership and literacy across contents.

Mrs. Kelley's career in education began in 2009 at Karen J. Wagner High School (JISD).  She also taught in Northside ISD at Sandra Day O'Connor and William J. Brennan High Schools.  Her classroom experiences include teaching various levels of English, Debate, Oral Interpretation, and Communication Applications.  She has also served as a campus UIL Coordinator, new teacher mentor, and level lead. 

The 2023-2024 school year is Mrs. Kelley's fourth year as an Academic Trainer at Veterans Memorial High School where her focus is supporting teachers through their planning and instruction.  She also maintains the campus social media feeds (follow @SAVeteransHS on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter).

Outside of school, she runs two successful businesses with her husband of seventeen years, and they share a twelve-year-old son.  In her free time, Mrs. Kelley loves to travel, try new restaurants, and attend concerts.

Mrs. Kelley is excited to grow and learn with the faculty, staff, students, and parents as they embark on yet another unforgettable school year.
