  • My name is Jessica Kelly.  I am currently a Prekinderten teacher at Abney Elementary Early Childhood Center in Slidell, LA.  I have been teaching in St. Tammany Parish for 5 years; three years in first grade and two in prekindergarten.  This is the start of my third year in prekindergarten.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management and a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education; both from the University of New Orleans.  I have been married to my handsome husband for 3 years.  I enjoy singing and leading at my church, and spending quality time with family and friends.

    Teaching is not only a profession, but also a calling.  I initially wanted to be a teacher because I know how important an education is and is becoming in our society.  What I didn't know was that being a teacher would require giving so much more than just my knowledge on a particular subject.  I would require endless love and encouragement for every child, and force me to take into account every action, word, and thought.  These children become more than students, they become a part of our school family.  The amount of time we spend with them allows us to really create a lasting impact that will hopefully be a postive change and catapult them into a wonderous future.

    I have two Para's who will be working with me this year: Marie Unser and Linda Hebert.  Both have spent many years at Abney as parent and teacher.  They will add so much value to our classroom.
