Hello! I am Nicole Kelley. I am a Special Education teacher and the Team Leader for Special Education here at AR Turner. This is my second year at this amazing school. Previously, I was the Redirect Specialist and Assistant Wrestling Coach at Willis HS.  I am honored to be AR Turner's 2015-2016 Teacher of the Year! 

I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a BS in Communication and Science Disorders/Deaf Ed. HOOK 'EM!! I went on to the University of Mary Hardin Baylor and completed my courses for elementary education. I am certified in Special Education (EC-12). I began my teaching career at Judson High School in Converse, Texas teaching American Sign Language I and II. I was also the Assistant Cheer Coach. After 5.5 years at Judson, I moved to Huntsville and was a Special Education teacher at Bayes Achievement Center for 9.5 years. My husband, H.L. and I have 2 children. Wyatt is in the Second Grade here at ART and Mattie is 3 years old. I also have 2 step daughters, Iriel, who is a college graduate and works for TDC and Brooke, who is a Freshman at Texas Tech University. 

I am so excited to be here at ART! I look forward to working with all the kids! Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions you may have.
