Mrs. Kelsey Damon

Welcome to 8th grade ELA! My name is Kelsey Damon. This is my second year of teaching after graduating from the University of Idaho (Go Vandals!) and I am excited to be a part of the Lake Hazel team this year.  I am recently married as of last summer to my husband Darren, who I met in college. We live in Kuna with our dog Cooper and love to spend our time hiking, golfing, and being with family. I grew up in the Treasure Valley, so being able to teach in the same place I grew up is something I feel very fortunate to do. 

I love working with middle school students for a number of reasons, but the biggest is that I really do think they are a blast to be around. This year we will be exploring different kinds of writing as well as taking a deep dive into great pieces of literature. Email and Teams are the easiest ways to reach me. When a student is absent, I will email the student the day's assignments as well as posting the weekly schedule in Teams. Feel free to contact me via email if you have any questions. I am looking forward to a great year! 

Bachelors of Science in Education with an emphasis in English from the University of Idaho
