Mrs. Kelly Pettit
Welcome to 5th Grade at Parkway School! Fifth grade is a magical time, especially at Parkway School. I will care and nurture your child as a student and person. During the year we watch our awesome students morph into mature independent learners and great problem solvers.
I am a teacher who is caring and compassionate. This trait has developed from being a teacher for 30 years and being a mother and wife. My husband, Kevin, and I have been married for 29 years. We have two children. Kara is 24 and has started a successful business as a hairstylist and make-up artist in Auburn, AL. Our son, Turk, recently graduated from Clemson University, and he is now a professional golfer. My husband, Kevin, is a retired golf professional and currently works for Mountain Lumber in Foscoe. Kevin and I moved to The High Country in July 2017 from Alabama. We love living in The High Country and our children love visiting!
During my teaching tenure, I have developed several core principles and beliefs which guide my work with students and their families.
1. I believe that all students can learn at high levels!
2. I believe that students must be motivated to be learners!
3. I believe that teaching and learning are inseparable!
4. I believe that students need a risk-free learning environment to learn!
5. I believe that families are a pivotal piece in their child's learning!
Let's work together to make great things happen for your child!
