Kessler Elementary Secretary, Christine Kelly joined the district in 2005 as a paraeducator before becoming a secretary. In her role as head secretary she is known for her calmness and ability to stay level-headed. She can be on the phone, covering the nurse’s office, and talking to a parent at the desk all at the same time, and doing it with a smile on her face. She knows the families and kids at her school and doesn’t get rattled when she is faced with a difficult situation. She is an asset to her building and the district.
