Ms. Kelli Reed
Welcome to the 2020 - 2021 school year! I am excited to work with Kirby Middle School parents and students to help this year be the best yet!
I was born in Texas, but I've lived all over the United States, including Alaska. My father was in the U.S. Marine Corp and the U.S. Coast Gaurd, so we moved around quite a bit. I graduated from Fountain Valley High School in Orange County, CA. Somehow, I eneded up in Alabama for 18 years. In my spare time I enjoy reading, crocheting, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
The 2020 - 2021 school year will be my 16th year of teaching. I previously taught special education in Alabama (ROLL TIDE ROLL!) for 13 years, before making the move back to my home state of Texas. My first 13 years of teaching were in an elementary school, where I have taught every grade level K-5 (Mostly 5th grade). In addition, I have 5 years of experience working in an Autism classroom for multiple grade levels. The 2018 - 2019 school year was my first year teaching in Texas, as well as my first year teaching middle school. Currently, I am teaching in the 7th and 8th grade ELA/R resource classroom.
I am certified to teach core subjects for Early Childhood (EC) - 6th grade, Special Education EC - 8, ELA/R for 4 - 8, and ESL for EC - 6. I am TAG certified, as well. In addition, I am also certified to teach core subjects and special education for K- 6 in Alabama.
I Earned all of my Degrees at The University of South Alabama (GO JAGS!)
