Mrs. Kelli Gardner
To love what you do and feel that it matters...These are words I read several years ago and they fit. As far back as I can remember, my plan was to become a teacher. My desire is that my students are eager to come to school each day and develop a lifelong love of learning. It's hard to believe that my career as an educator began over thirty years ago. My experience has included both public and private school teaching in second through fourth grades, along with eight years as an elementary principal. This is my third year teaching in Tyler ISD, and I am excited to once again be teaching fourth grade math and science. I look forward to an amazing year working with a fantastic group of students, families, and staff. I am proud to be a part of the Rice Ranger team!
