Hello! I am Natalie Kelley and I teach first grade at Donald Leonetti Elementary. I started my career at DLE as a paraprofessional in the SAILS program and found my passion in special education. During the pandemic, I was asked if I would want to teach first grade and despite moving away from special education, I was SUPER excited because FIRST GRADE ROCKS!
I am a product of Fort Bend ISD starting at Palmer Elementary, moving on to Lake Olympia Middle School, then graduating from Elkins High School with Texas Scholars. I was active in the Elkins Elite and Yearbook staff. I graduated University with my Bachelors of Science in Psychology with full intentions of becoming a teacher but not taking the traditional route.
I am a mother to 3 children: Keegan, Madison, and Grayson. My husband and I live happily in Sienna with our children and two dogs.
