Ms. Gove


My name is Kelley Gove. This is my 6th year teaching 4th grade at Chief Joseph Elementary. Last year I taught at Chief Joseph, but I was completely online with a 4th grade class through VSH. That was a great experience. I learned so much about online teaching, but I am happy to have students back at school. If we do have to go back to some online Teams teaching I am very qualified. We will do great! 

I believe the best way to get students learning is to have them actively engaged in their own learning. The best way to do that is through discovery. My lessons are designed to have students learning through doing: trial-and-error, solving problems, and creating new solutions. My students learn that mistakes will happen and we learn from them.  

I am a mom of three great kids, ages 19, 21, 26! They all went to Chief Joseph! I have two dachshunds, Fargo and Lucy, and one black cat named Zelda. I love the spring and the summer. Being outside in the sunshine is my favorite activity. I enjoy camping by a lake or river so when it gets hot there is a place to cool off. I love coffee, chocolate, cookies, and Mexican food. 

I will be starting on my Masters degree in Curriculum and Planning on September 20th. It is with Eastern Washington University. It is completely online. I look forward to using what I am learning in the program with my students. 

It is going to be a great year!
