Mrs. Linda Kelly

Welcome to 7th grade Exceptional Children's Services!


I am Mrs. Kelly, and I am excited to be serving as the Exceptional Children's teacher for 7th grade this year.    This is my fifth year at Winkler Middle School.   During my time here, I have served as an EC teacher as well as an English Language Arts teacher.  My undergraduate degree is in English from Furman University (Go Paladins!) in Greenville, SC, and I also hold an MBA degree from Georgia State University in Atlanta.  I am working on my National Board Teacher Certification in middle school English Language Arts this year. 

I have 3 children, a son and two daughters.  I enjoy reading, baking, exercising, being outdoors, walking the dog, and watching sports (especially college football).  My favorite teams are the Clemson Tigers and the Michigan Wolverines. I also have a 10 year-old german shepherd and several fish friends!

I look forward to working with your student this year.
