Kelsie was born and raised in Michigan. She graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. After a stressful summer of job applications and interviewing she landed her dream job as a 3rd grade teacher. She is thrilled to be a part of the Tenspire community. She can’t wait to serve as a friend to other first year teachers dealing with the excitement of this rewarding (and sometimes scary) new career. Outside of the classroom Kelsie enjoys shopping, going out for coffee, and spending time with her boyfriend and her puppy, Ellie.
