My name is Kelly Marostica (Mrs. M to most of my students) and I am thrilled to be joining the First Grade Team at Crystal River Elementary this year! I love working with some of our youngest students. Building relationships and creating positive feelings around school and learning is so important.
I grew up on the Front Range, in Loveland, Colorado. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Education from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas. This year will be my 13th year teaching Kindergarten or First Grade! Last May, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Integrated STEM Education from Loras College. I LOVE teaching all things math, problem solving, and science!
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy anything that gets me outdoors! A few of my favorite things are running, hiking, fly fishing, walking my dog, or reading a good book on the patio. I live in Carbondale with my husband, Ryan, and our sweet pup, Cooper.
I'm so excited to be here and look forward to working with students, parents and staff at Crystal River Elementary School.
