Hello and welcome to Shepherd Junior High School! My name is Kelley Mohr and I will be teaching 8th grade general and honors science this year. I am looking forward to meeting you and getting to know all of you over the course of the school year.

I’d like to take this opportunity to share a few things about myself. I am originally from Minnesota. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2005 from St. Cloud State University, St. Cloud, Minnesota, with a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education with a middle school science endorsement. This is my 14th year of teaching. I have been teaching 8th grade science here at Shepherd Junior High for the past 9 years. Previously, I taught middle school science at Imagine East Mesa Charter School. Prior to relocating to sunny Arizona, I enjoyed working as a special education paraprofessional and substitute teacher in central Minnesota.

I have been married for almost 36 years to a wonderful man, whose name is also Kelly (he spells his name wrong, though)! Together we have three beautiful children: Jonathan, age 34; Jeremy, age 33; Alea, age 25; and 4 grandchildren. I enjoy reading, the outdoors, spending time with my family, and, of course, teaching and learning about science!

I am very excited about the upcoming school year! I know that we will have a lot of fun learning with and from each other! If you should have any questions or concerns about your child’s academic or social progress please feel free to contact me at your convenience. I am available by phone or e-mail and you are always welcome to stop in and speak to me personally.
