Mrs. Kelly Baun
I have been a teacher at Woodmen Hills for 15 years in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. Previously, I taught 6th grade Language Arts in Minnesota for 5 years. I have an additional certificate as a Master Reading Teacher. This will be my third year as the Gifted and Talented Facilitator. I am so excited about digging deep with highly engaging explorations of the students' passions. My husband teaches social studies at Falcon High School, and I have two daughters in 5th and 8th grade. As a family, we love to camp, hike, and swim during our free time. I also love to read and make projects from Pinterest for my home and classroom. In my classroom, I try to create a warm, comfortable, and safe environment. Creating relationships with my students is important to me which I believe contributes to their success. I have high expectations for all students to be engaged continuously and create opportunities to build on individual interests.
