Mrs. Kelly Box
Hi! My name is Kelly Box. This is my 23rd year teaching. I began my career at Chappelow Middle School teaching 6th grade math. This was the last year Chappelow was open as a Middle School. I was hired to teach at John Evans Middle School for 6th grade Science. I quickly learned that I missed Chappelow terribly and I returned to begin my 3rd year of teaching in the 5th grade classroom. For the next 8 years, I taught 5th and 6th grade math.
I was blessed with three beautiful children and soon realized that I didn't want to miss this precious time with them nor could I afford 3 babies in daycare. I decided to be a stay at home mom. I did however still teach during those 4 years. I taught math at the Greeley Alternative Program at night.
In 2013, I knew it was time to return to teaching full time. I took a risk and applied at Chappelow for the only position they had open at the time which was 1st grade. I was scared to death and they were crazy enough to hire me back!! I taught 1st grade for the next 4 years.
I returned to my middle school life as the 6th and 7th grade math teacher in 2017. I plan to keep this position until I retire in 7 years!
I have lived in Greeley since I was 18 years old. I have been married to my husband for 21 years and we have three amazing children. I love watching my kids pursue their interests in swimming, hockey, lacrosse and volleyball. When I am not ubering my kids across Northern Colorado, I enjoy reading, watching the Broncos and Avalanche, crafting, walking my dogs and spending time with family and friends.
I am so excited for the 2022-23 school year!
