Hello! My name is Kelly Overby and I am so delighted to be your child's first grade teacher this year. My husband and I have lived in Slidell for our 15 years and we have two boys and a yellow lab. In my free time, I love to play in my garden and watch my boys play baseball.
I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of New Orleans. I have been working in early childhood education for over five years. I have also been actively involved in Whispering Forest Elementary for several years. I love what I do and I feel appreciative to work as part of a team that makes such an impact on the daily lives and education of children.
My goal for the school year is to provide students with challenging and meaningful learning necessary for life-long learning to help them become productive members of a global society. I am looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your child.
Welcome to First Grade!
