My name is Tara Kelly and I was born and raised in Northern Kentucky along with my younger brother and sister. I went to elementary school at St. Joseph Crescent Springs and attended high school at Notre Dame Academy. I have a degree from Xavier University in Early Childhood Education and a Master’s degree also from Xavier University, in Multicultural Literature. I have the honor of being recognized as “Teacher of the Year” by the Florence Rotary in 2021-2022.  This is my 20th year teaching at Saint Paul School. I have taught 2 years in first grade and the rest in second grade. I enjoy helping the second graders prepare for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion during the school year. Some of my favorite things to do in my spare time are watch Xavier basketball, travel to new places, bake treats and read books. I hope you are as excited about being a St. Paul Panther, as I am about being your teacher.
