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 at LDE since 2013 in various grades including Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade. First Graders experience a significant period of social and academic growth, which is amazing to see!
It is my job to collaborate with my students' parents, as well as my talented co-workers 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 with learning, radiate kindness, 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.
