Kelsey is an engaging and dynamic presenter who invites other educators to examine and investigate British Columbia’s revised curriculum, especially the Core Competencies, by sharing the trials and triumphs of her own practice. Kelsey makes the revised curriculum accessible by sharing specific examples from her own classroom practice – the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of her own professional inquiry.
Kelsey Keller is a grade 3/4/5 Montessori educator and a Learning Support Teacher in SD43. Her classroom is a ‘laboratory classroom’ that hosts visiting teachers and invites them to join the organized chaos. Current experiments unfolding in ‘the lab’ include: Core Competencies, Problem Based Learning, “Anarchy Hour,” and Common Language. Kelsey is currently researching the effects of a “common language” within the classroom community, and how it influences students’ ability to engage in meaningful self assessment and metacognition.
Kelsey live is Port Coquitlam with her incredibly supportive husband and three amazing daughters.
