Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kellie Vanek
I am originally from Iron Station, NC, a small town just 30 minutes north of Charlotte. I earned my undergraduate degree from UNC Chapel Hill and then moved to "Beantown" to receive my Master's in Elementary Education from UMass Boston. This is my 13th year as an educator. I have two young daughters, Ava and Riley, and I spend most of my spare time doing fun things with them! We love going to the park, going for nature walks, doing arts and crafts, and dancing! I have always been very passionate about environmental issues, so I feel very fortunate to have found a home at MECME. Go Bees!
What excites me about Environmental Connections...
I have always been passionate about protecting our environment, so I'm excited to pass this interest and passion along to today's youth, as they will be the changemakers of the future!
