Hello! My name is Kellie VanderMolen but my students best know me as Mrs. V!
I am so excited to be joining the Shuford Owls.
I am originally from Michigan where I was born and raised among farmland and dairy cows! Shortly after graduating high school, my husband and I moved to the beautiful state of Alaska where he was stationed with the Army. I continued my education at the University of Alaska where I received my bachelors degree in elementary education.
Our journey with the military brought us to South Carolina next. I went on to complete my master's degree from Western Governors University in learning and technology.
I have enjoyed teaching various grade levels but for the past 6 years I have spent my best years teaching and inspiring 5th graders and helping them transition to middle school.
I absolutely love teaching and my passion for 5th grade continues to grow with each year.
I look forward to another school year with a new set of fresh faces joining me each day! I hope you are just as excited!
