About Mrs. Kellem

I have been a part of Bardstown City Schools since 2001. I worked at the Early Childhood Center from 2001-2003 as the Parent Coordinator. I have been teaching since 2004. At Bardstown Elementary, I taught fourth grade for two years and third grade from 2006-2015. From 2015-2017, I served as the Math Intervention Teacher at BPS. This is my second year teaching first grade.


I have a B.A. in Speech Communication from Indiana University Southeast. I completed my teacher certification program in 2004 and was recertified through the Kentucky Department of Education's Continuing Education Option in March 2014.

Math Intervention at BPS

In August 2015, I became the district's first Math Intervention Teacher at Bardstown Primary School. I became a Math Intervention Specialist in 2016. My position was partially funded by a Math Achievement Fund grant through the Kentucky Center for Mathematics. I loved supporting BPS students and teachers in their math journeys.


Teaching math is my passion. I have been working to improve and enhance my math instructional practices since 2010. I enjoy attending math conferences and professional development courses each year to stay up-to-date on best teaching practices in math.


I completed Math Recovery training in Add+Vantage Math Recovery, as well as Student Numeracy Assessment Progressions (SNAP) assessments. I completed Math Recovery Intervention Specialist certification in June 2016. These assessments and trainings allow me to screen and diagnose a child's current location on their math learning journey. As an interventionist, I used this information to help the classroom teacher to support the student, as well as to determine if the student would benefit from small group or one-on-one instruction outside of the classroom.


In 2017, funding was no longer available to continue the Math Intervention program. I returned to the classroom in the 2017-18 school year in my new role as a first grade teacher.

 

In addition to teaching, I also created and manage the Math Intervention Matters group for teachers on Facebook. This group serves as a teaching resource and support page for math teachers all over the world. We currently have over 6,000 members.
