Degrees and Certifications:
Miss Odom, Third Grade
I am a Colorado native. Having been born and raised in the scenic mountain town of Gunnison, I learned to ski when I was three years old. By third grade, I knew I wanted to be an elementary school teacher. I am an only child with wonderfully supportive parents. I enjoy paddle boarding, mountain biking, walks in the Colorado sunshine and spending time with my friends and family. In May of 2013, I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies Elementary Teaching. One of the reasons I want to dedicate my life to teaching is because I believe that a quality education is the key that unlocks goals, dreams and aspirations. I completed my student teaching at Harold S. Winograd K-8 School with second grade teacher Mrs. Smith. I am thrilled to be a part of the Winograd team!
Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,
My name is Kelsey Odom, but my students call me Miss Odom. In May of 2013, I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies Elementary Teaching. Some of you may already know me because I completed my student teaching with second grade teacher, Mrs. Smith, and I have taught third grade at Harold S. Winograd K-8 School for the past five years. I am thrilled to be a part of the Winograd team.
I was born and raised in the scenic mountain town of Gunnison, Colorado where I attended a K-8 school very similar to Winograd. If you and your family are new to Winograd, I think you will find that there is a family-like atmosphere that allows students to thrive and become responsible, caring and intelligent young adults.
Third grade is going to be a challenging yet fun year! In the spring, students take the CMAS state assessments, so for the majority of the year third graders hone their test taking skills and increase their ability to work independently. I hold myself to high standards as a teacher, and I hold my students to high standards as well. It is my experience that when individuals have lofty goals they often rise to meet them. That is what we are going to be doing in Room 110 – showing our smarts and furthering our knowledge!
Parents and guardians, I know you care deeply about your child and I do too! I want to work as a team during the 2018-2019 school year to help your child grow in the classroom and beyond. I think communication is essential so you can expect newsletters and notes home. I look forward to meeting and talking to each one of you. Please do not hesitate to call me or email me.
Thank you for your cooperation and excitement as we head towards the 2018-2019 school year!
