    Mrs. Susan Kelly
    English as a Second Language Program Specialist
    Gulph Elementary School


    Hello and welcome to my webpage! My name is Susan Kelly and I teach English as a Second Language at Gulph Elementary School. Within the Upper Merion Area School District, I have taught at Caley Elementary School, Roberts Elementary School, Bridgeport Elementary School and Upper Merion Area High School.  Prior to coming to UMASD, I taught for 16 years in New Jersey. I earned my BA in International Languages and Business from the University of Scranton and my MA in Urban Education and English as a Second Language from New Jersey City University. I was part of an academic coaching cohort at Eastern University, and most recently I completed my M. Ed. in Educational Leadership at Arcadia University.  I consider myself to be a lifelong learner. I have been teaching since 1994 and have enjoyed every minute of it!
    I am originally from New Jersey but now live in Havertown with my husband and our two Beagle rescue pups, Jingle and Jangle. I am a very proud aunt to a beautiful niece and 4 cool  nephews. They continue to inspire me each and every day. 
    Here are a few tidbits about me:
    • My favorite color is purple, green is a close second.
    • Christmas is my favorite holiday.
    • The fall is my favorite season...........along with football season!
    • I am not a Giants or Jets fan......GO EAGLES!
    • I love to cook and bake.
    • My favorite books are children's books and cookbooks, and I have lots of them!
    • I wish I had more of a green thumb, but I do enjoy digging in the yard and planting flowers.
    • I am the youngest of 3 children, and the only girl!
    • I've met Mo Willems and Vera B. Williams.....do you know what they've written?
    • I am and always will be a "Jersey Girl" and enjoy spending time at the shore.
    • My favorite way to relax is reading a book at the beach.
    • I once went skydiving (and thankfully I am still here to talk about it!)
    • I have recently discovered Yoga and love it.....Namaste.

    I look forward to another rewarding school year in Upper Merion, working with some of the most dedicated professionals in education.

    The mission of the Upper Merion Area School District is to inspire excellence in every student every day.
