About Mrs. Kellem

I have been a part of Bardstown Independent Schools since 2001. I worked at the Early Childhood Center from 2001-2003 as the Parent Coordinator. I was hired to teach fourth grade in 2004. I taught fourth grade for two years and I taught third grade from 2006-2015.

In August 2015, I became the district's first Math Intervention Teacher at Bardstown Primary School. I became a Math Intervention Specialist in 2016. My position was partially funded by a Math Achievement Fund grant through the Kentucky Center for Mathematics. I have loved supporting BPS students and teachers in their math journeys.
In 2017, funding was not available to continue the Math Intervention program. I returned to the classroom in the 2017-18 school year in my new role as a first grade teacher.
I have a B.A. in Speech Communication from Indiana University Southeast. I completed my teacher certification program in 2004 at IUS and was recertified through the Kentucky Department of Education's Continuing Education Option in March 2014.

Teaching math is my passion. I have been working to improve and enhance my math instructional practices since 2010. I enjoy attending math conferences and professional development courses each year to stay up-to-date on best teaching practices in math.
I completed Math Recovery training in Add+Vantage Math Recovery, as well as Student Numeracy Assessment Progressions (SNAP) assessments. I completed Math Recovery Intervention Specialist certification in June 2016. These assessments and trainings allow me to screen and diagnose a child's current location on their math learning journey. As an interventionist, I used this information to help the classroom teacher to support the student, as well as to determine if the student would benefit from small group or one-on-one instruction outside of the classroom.
I created and manage the Math Intervention Matters group for teachers on Facebook in 2017. This group serves as a teaching resource and support page for math teachers all over the world. We currently have over 2,000 members.

You can also contact me and find math resources at Bardstown Primary School Math Intervention on Facebook.
