1st Grade - Mrs. Kelly » Welcome!


Mrs. Kelly

Hello! Thank you for visiting my Page on our McKinley School Website😊 I am Mrs. Monica Kelly and I teach First grade.  I have been teaching in the Canon City School District and McKinley Elementary Kindergarten for 11 years, and this will be my first year teaching First grade. I am very excited to start this new adventure!!









About Me:  My family and I moved to Cañon City from Texas in 1988. I taught preschool for 6 years in Texas and after moving here I started St. Michael’s Preschool and was the Director there for 9 years. After finishing my BA through Regis University I began teaching Kindergarten in 2005. After teaching for 11 years in Kindergarten at McKinley Elementary I will have a new adventure in First grade this year. I also completed a Master’s in Literacy, Language and Culture through Adams State University in 2009.

I am married to Bill and we have 4 children – Theresa, Chris, Jacob and Sarah. We also have 5 grandchildren, the newest arrived on July 25!! I love teaching at McKinley, we are such a friendly, family oriented school!
