2nd Grade - Miss Kelly Dickinson

2nd Grade - Ms. Kelly Dickinson

Welcome to Room 9!

All About Miss Dickinson:

I am overjoyed to be teaching your students this year.  One of my favorite parts about teaching 2nd grade is the children's enthusiasm for learning.

I am a San Mateo native.  I attended school at Sunnybrae, Borel, and Aragon High School.  I graduated from Saint Mary's College of California with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal and Civic Studies, a minor in performing arts with an emphasis in dance, and a California Teaching Credential in 2013. 

This is my sixth year of teaching!  I am so lucky to be at Beresford.  I love the school community and cannot imagine working anywhere else.  

Outside of school, I am  either teaching dance classes, taking classes at the gym, or watching soccer games.  I'm always spending time with my family and friends.

  • Ticonderoga #2 pencils
