Mrs. Kelsey Starkey
Welcome to our 1st Grade Class Website!
I'm Kelsey Starkey and I am so blessed to be a part of the Falcon Family. I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, focusing on Elementary Education. I have been teaching since 2013 here at LDE in various grades including Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade. First Graders experience a significant period of social and academic growth, which I look forward to see take place during our year together.
“Educating the mind without educating
the heart is no education at all.”
I believe that every child can learn and grow to reach their fullest potential and I am thankful to be a part of that. It is my job to collaborate with my students' parents, who know their child better than anyone, as well as with a talented group of educators here in Lake Dallas ISD to help each child succeed. By guiding my students with effective teaching strategies and engaging learning experiences full of real-world applications, I hope to encourage every child I work with to fall in love learning and be successful in our quickly evolving society.
I am so excited to meet and work with all of my new students this year! I can't wait to see what all we accomplish.
