Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Kelley Alvarez. I teach Reading, Writing, and Social Studies here at Wakefield Elementary. I jumped into working with elementary students through a high school program and discovered I loved every moment. Previously, I worked for a private preschool for about eight years before finishing my degree in 2015 at Texas A&M Commerce and came straight to Wakefield!
Reading has always been my passion. When I'm not teaching, you can almost always find me curled up on a couch with a good book and a large coffee. I married my high school sweetheart many, many years ago. Together we love geeking out with Star Wars, Harry Potter, and any gaming system, especially the old relics like ourselves! 😉 I'm devoted to helping students grow their passion for reading because there's nothing better than discovering worlds, adventures, and yourself through the pages of a book.
