Mrs. Kechely

Welcome to my REACH/Gifted classroom webpage. I am Leigh Kechely and have been teaching since 2004.  I enjoy guiding students to discover and work toward their greatest potential.

Education

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and Marketing from Montana State University.  In addition, I have a Master of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of Arizona.  I also have a full Gifted Endorsement.

Prior Experience

I have 13 years experience teaching first and second grades as a REACH Cluster teacher.  I have coached 3rd-5th graders for Prince Elementary Odyssey of the Mind teams for 7 years, qualifying for World Finals 5 times.

Defining Moment in my Education

I realized how powerful collaboration is when taking calculus in college.  Being able to work with others is an important life long skill, so I provide many varied opportunities for collaboration. 

Hobbies and Interests

I enjoy hiking, traveling, fitness, cooking and family time.
