Mrs. Spaulding believes that all children deserve the opportunity to be a part of a classroom that allows them to grow physically, socially, emotionally, and academically. “As an educator, I wish to provide a classroom environment where students develop a love of learning. I believe strongly in the importance of classroom community building to create a positive learning environment.” She values the importance of engaging in close-knit communication with parents so she can foster successful learning beyond the classroom walls. Kelsey believes in providing a classroom experience where all the needs of learners are met. Her classroom instruction incorporates hands-on activities to allow learning through active participation. “When students are engaged, the greatest learning potential occurs.” Mrs. Spaulding loves sparking the curiosity in her students and watching them blossom through their early years in Elementary Education.

“In April after two years of full time preschool, my daughter's old school told me she was struggling with letters and numbers (frustrating for a parent to learn at the end of the year). We worked this summer with flash cards etc, but I still felt like I wasn't really getting anywhere with it. Then, last Friday night, during our usual Friday night date we play the word game on the back of the kid's menu (to further practice letters), I just could not believe not only how much better she's gotten with her letters and numbers, but it was the confidence she was exuding. Huge kudos Ms Cole!

- My daughter loves WA and again, can't thank you enough!
