Mrs. Natalie Kelley

Hello! My name is Natalie Kelley and I am a first grade teacher at Donald Leonetti Elementary. I am proud to be a Leonetti Lion and teaching is my passion. I love to build relationships with my students and their families to promote success and help with their socio-emotional growth.

I grew up in Missouri City attending FBISD schools. I graduated from Elkins High School in 2002 and spent the first half of my freshman year in college at Stephen F. Austin State University. I then moved to San Diego where I started a career in dentistry. I moved back to Missouri City in 2011 and, after a few more years in dentistry, I decided it wasn't where I was truly happy. I went back to my childhood dream of becoming a teacher and I couldn't have been happier. It is an incredibly rewarding career.

When I am not at school, I spend time with my family. My husband Brandon and I live in Sienna with our 3 children, Keegan, Madison, and Grayson, along with our 3 fur babies, Bruce, Fiona, and Loki. We are always busy with soccer or dance. We love our community and I am beyond blessed to work and live where my students live!
