Kelly Marsh, Title 1 Reading Interventionist

Long time Title 1 interventionist Kelly Marsh will retire this month from Painted Sky Elementary School after teaching New Mexican elementary school students for 38 years. A native of Hobbs, Kelly began her teaching career there after her graduation from Eastern New Mexico University in Portales. Nine years later, she and her husband Brian, also a teacher, moved to Albuquerque where Kelly began teaching both special and general education elementary classes with APS. Kelly spent her first 10 years at Bandelier Elementary School. When Painted Sky opened its doors in 1998, she joined the original staff under Dr. Pat Woodard and has worked there ever since. She retires as one of the school's beloved reading interventionists. As she reflected on her years working with young readers, she remarked, “I have always loved Dr. Seuss. I know it is corny, but I love him. Here’s my favorite quote from his words: ‘The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.’” Painted Sky wishes Kelly the best as she and her family travel to more places!
