Welcome to Third Grade!

My name is Jessica Keely and I am very pleased and honored to be working with your student this year! I am excited to work with all of the wonderful students, staff, and parents in making this a successful school year. 

I received my masters in Elementary Education at the University of Minnesota. In 2014-2015 I did my full year student teaching placement here at Dowling with Lisa Gustafson (Mrs. G.) in first grade. After graduating, I was lucky enough to begin my teaching career at Dowling. The last two years I taught first grade reduction, kindergarten math routines, and was the site lead for talent development. I have a passion for traveling, and had the amazing opportunity to teach in both Thailand and Germany for a few short months. This will be my first year in Third Grade, and I am beyond excited to work with such an experienced team.

I intend to make learning come to life and guide these students into becoming life-long learners. My hope is that all my students become critical thinkers, respectful and active members of society, culturally competent, problem solvers, and engage in self-discovery in and out of the classroom.
