Hi there, everybody! Let me introduce myself! My name is Kelsey Schwartz, and this is my fourth year teaching here at Markham Park School! I am a 2020 graduate of Trinity Christian College, where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and an LBS 1 Endorsement! I am currently seeking my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a Reading Specialist Endorsement through University of Kansas! In my free time, I enjoy relaxing with a good book, sipping a nice cup of coffee, spending time with my friends & family, and spoiling my dog! I have known since the age of 13 that I wanted to teach when I was older. Now that the time has come, I am so excited to be doing something that I am so passionate about! I believe that learning is a cooperative experience between the teacher and her students, and I cannot wait for a year full of learning, growth and fun!
Here are some fun facts about myself to help us get to know each other!
- I am 26 years od!
- I have one nephew and two nieces, and I am blessed that both of my nieces are my goddaughter's!
- I have one brother who lives in Montana, with my nephew and one niece!
- I live in Orland with my mom, dad and dog, Otis :)
Here are some of my favorite things...

I can't wait to get started and learn about each of you as we grow together this year! This year, I want us to remember to be the change that we want to see in the world!
