Ms. Kelly Tran
Hello my most amazing artists and families! I am Ms. Tran and I'm so happy to be your art teacher.
This is currently my fifteenth year teaching in the Mercer Island School District. My entire life, I've always had a deep passion for observing and creating art.
Originally, I taught seven years of 2nd Grade, followed by five years of 3rd Grade at Lakeridge Elementary. Throughout my years as a general education teacher, I always tried to find ways to integrate art into all the subjects I taught. Now as the Art Teacher at Lakeridge and Northwood, I get to use both my love of the arts and my experience as a teacher to create with kids all day, everyday.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Studio Art and a Master's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Puget Sound. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher.
I look forward to making many masterpieces with you this year!
