Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education UNCG Class of 2015
Hello! My name is Mary Kelly.
I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in May of 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. My teaching career began here at Pine Level Elementary in August of 2015, and I have taught third grade each year. I was chosen as Micro-Pine Level's 2015-2016 Outstanding First Year Teacher, and was a finalist for Johnston County's First Year Teacher of the Year.
I grew up here in Pine Level, and attended Micro-Pine Level Elementary School "back in the day." Then, I went on to attend North Johnston Middle School and North Johnston High School. Growing up, I took dance at Baker School of Dance and taught dance classes in high school.
I still live in the area with my husband, Chris. We have a cat named Pippin, he was named after one of the hobbits from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I am a coffee addict (I LOVE Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts) and I love chocolate. When I'm not teaching I enjoy shopping, going on walks, and reading various books. I chose to become a teacher because I love seeing my students have those "Ah-Ha!" moments! I look forward to helping your child grow and learn so many new things this school year!!
