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.
