Kelsey is currently the School Leader at KIPP Courage College Prep, after spending the last two years as the School Leader of KIPP 3D Academy. Kelsey came to KIPP 3D as a student teacher in an 8th grade ELA classroom and finished out her first year at 3D as a permanent substitute prior to teaching 5th grade. Kelsey’s grandmother was an elementary school librarian who instilled in Kelsey a love of reading at a very early age. She passed on that same passion for reading to her students through teaching 5th grade ELA for three years. She received her B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas A&M University in 2011 and her M.Ed. from the University of Houston in 2016.
