APPOINTED: 2010

Humanities, Math, Director of Student Support and Faculty Development.

Kelly and her husband, Jon, live on campus in Elkins House with two rather busy young men, Miles and Kyler, and their 2 dogs. A talented baker and cook, she regularly indulges Winchendon’s students and her colleagues with great food. Kelly puts her remarkable educational and organizational skills to the test every day as Director of Student Support and Faculty Development. She is passionate about unleashing the potential of each student, and she makes sure that the teachers are trained in the best individualization practices and strategies. If that all doesn’t keep her busy enough, she is always pitching in to help organize the next event for the students, whether it is a day at the amusement park, a dance or any of many other fun events.
