Hello! I'm Miss Kelly. I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania! My family and I moved to Raleigh, North Carolina shortly thereafter, so I grew up in our Capital City! I graduated from Appalachian State University in the lovely mountains of Boone, North Carolina (Go Mountaineers!!!). During my time at ASU, I loved to explore the outdoors through hiking, skiing, and other adventures! I love to visit Boone as often as I can on weekends and track-outs. 
 
I have wanted to become a teacher since I was seven years old! After beginning my teaching journey teaching third grade, I am excited to continue my journey in first grade! I hope that my own passion and love for learning will foster a classroom filled with love, hard work, and success! I truly believe in having a growth mindset. My students and I never say "I can't do it." Instead, we say "I can't do it... YET!" My favorite subject to teach is math! 
 
I love to travel, and I have traveled to over eighteen different countries. Italy and Germany are two of my favorites, though Iceland was my latest adventure in 2016! I even spent two whole summers in Italy, where sometimes I ate two gelatos per day!! I hope that my love for traveling the world will help me to create a classroom filled with global citizens. It is going to be a wonderful year of learning with each of my first grade students and families!

Hi! My name is Marion Escoto and I am so excited about my first year at Olive Chapel. I was a preschool teacher for over 10 years before I decided to change my career path and become a TA. I have a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education from Radford university and I am currently a Graduate student in the MAT program at Meredith College where I am working on my Masters in ESL. 
My husband, Jose and I am have lived in Apex for 20 years with our 4 amazing children Anna 16, Seve 14, Anthony 12, and Bella 10.They keep us busy, but we still find time to play soccer, go fishing, biking,and just have fun as a family. We love to be outside! My family is my greatest blessing!
 
Being a part of a child's education is such an priviledge and I am so proud to be a part of their journey at such a great school!
