My name is Kelly Leehey and I am a first-year teacher in Tucson, AZ. I currently teach a primary multiage class in a public Dual Language and Project-based Learning K-8 school. I begin my career as a teaching professional brimming with excitement and armed with a wonderful student teaching experience.
I recently graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.A. in Anthropology and a B.A.E in Elementary Education. As an Anthropology major I was enchanted by the idea of unearthing the stories of people from the past, of getting to know and understand people separate from me in place, in time, and in culture. I believe my fascination with people led me to teaching. As a teacher, one of my goals is to challenge children to engage in understanding people, in unearthing their own stories and the stories of others
