Hi everyone! My name is Kelsey Malen and I LOVE teaching at Porter. I have been teaching for 4 years with 3 years in second grade at Porter. Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I am so grateful to be in this career. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2018 with a Bachelors in Elementary Education. I even taught at Porter while I was student teaching. 

Student relationships are very important to me. I want everyone to feel safe, a sense of belonging, and truly cared for. I believe that with fostering strong relationships, students are more likely to succeed and want to learn. I also implement flexible seating where all students have choice and can learn in a way that is comfortable and best for them. 

I am a born and raised Arizona gal! I actually attended Mesa Public Schools K-12 as a child. It's so fun teaching in the district I grew up in. Currently, I live in Downtown Phoenix with my best friend and my cat, Munchies. I love exploring, reality tv, traveling, photography, and relaxing with my friends and family. I have 2 nephews and 1 niece who are my world. I hope to travel all over the world one day where I can try lots of things that get me out of my comfort zone!
