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 year.
This is currently my sixteenth 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 Elementary Art Specialist at Lakeridge and Northwood, I get to use 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!
