Hi! My name is Kate Pelais and I am extremely excited to be your first grade teacher!
I am currently going into my ninth year of teaching. I have three years of kindergarten, two years of 3rd grade, and three years of 1st grade under my belt! My husband and I moved to Lexington in the summer of 2015 from Charlottesville, Virginia. I grew up in Richmond, Virginia and attended the University of Virginia (Go Hoos!) where I received my Bachelors degree in history and Masters degree in Teaching.
While I'm not a busy body at school getting ready for my AMAZING students, I enjoy baking (I'm always looking for taste-testers), reading, cross stiching, crocheting, and rewatching my favorite television shows. My husband and I have been married for 7 years. We have an adorable 1 year old daughter named Charlotte and an 8 year old cairn terrier named Riley.
In our classroom we will work hard through engaging and thought provoking lessons. I work so that my students are invested in their learning and want to work hard to succeed. I see it as my job to give them the resources and guidance to reach this success. We will have an amazing year!
Please contact me by email, school phone, or the Remind app with any questions or concerns!
