Hello Parents, Students and Community Members~
I am Mrs. Keller. I'm very excited to be at Alder Creek Middle School and looking forward to working with the awesome students, families, and community members in Truckee.
After graduating from Bethel University with a Bachelor’s Degree in K-8 Science I was hired by the St. Paul School District in Minnesota. After working in St. Paul for a year I moved to rural Alaska. I spent nine years teaching in rural Alaskan villages. The villages were only accessible by airplanes year round, and barges in the summer. I’ve been fortunate in my career to teach grades fourth through twelfth science, math, and reading. Science has always been my favorite, because it seamlessly connects all of the content areas together.
I'm pursuing a Doctorate in Educational Leadership through Bethel University in St. Paul Minnesota. My Masters Degree is in K-12 Education, and my Bachelor's Degree was in K-8 Science Education with an Elementary Endorsement. I attained my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees through Bethel University in St. Paul Minnesota.
When I'm not in the classroom I enjoy being outdoors. Hiking, running, bird watching, and gardening are a few of my hobbies. I love to read and am often reading several books at the same time. Reading is a vital skill and a critical way to model lifelong learning for students. I'm looking forward to many new adventures in Northern California!
