Blog Author & Community Facilitator

My name is Suzanne Kelley (Suzy).<span class=”Apple-converted-space”>  </span>I am a mother to a wonderful daughter, my mini-me.  I am helping her to raise my grandbaby, along with her boyfriend in Normal, IL. I received my undergrad in SED at Illinois State University in 1990, and my master’s in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialty in reading and assessment in 2012.<span class=”Apple-converted-space”>  </span>I have taught for 29 years and counting at Hammitt Elementary School in Normal, with the best co-workers anyone could ever want.<span class=”Apple-converted-space”>  </span>Hammitt is a non-public, specialized school working with students with the most severe emotional, behavioral, learning, and mental issues as well as those students on the spectrum.<span class=”Apple-converted-space”>  </span>Our students are unable to succeed in their school districts’ SED programs and come to us on a referral basis. My kiddos are those 5-8 year olds that are so needing love and kindness from adults and structure and consistency in their programming.<span class=”Apple-converted-space”>  </span>Each student becomes a member of my class and school family; expanding my heart’s capacity and teaching me new things all of the time.<span class=”Apple-converted-space”>  </span>I cannot imagine doing anything else, anywhere else.
