Hello! My name is Kelly Michelle Mills. As a young child I always had dreams of becoming a teacher. I admired all of my teachers and always enjoyed school because everyday I learned new things. As a student, teachers seemed like human dispensers of vast knowledge. I longed to be as intellectual as they were some day. After many years of "playing teacher", with the help of my family, I graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Education from Henderson State University, in May of 2005. It took me eleven years to complete my education, due to life's unexpected twists and turns. However, I am very proud of my accomplishment and strive to be a life-long learner. I am currently in my ninth year of teaching high school, which was not my original certification area, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I truly love my job because I love my students. I look at teaching as the best opportunity in the world to impact people in a positive way by daily challenging, encouraging and enriching lives so that students can become a success.
