Kelly Elder

Kelly Elder Mathematics Teacher

My career at Havergal started 34 years ago as a new teacher right out of university. I have been given many opportunities for growth, PD and leadership positions. I feel supported by the administration to try new methods of teaching and have been provided the latest technology to enhance my classroom. I am able to keep in touch with my previous students through reunions and have even started to teach some of their daughters. The Havergal community truly feels like my home!

Working in a service department at Havergal gives me opportunities to work on projects that support students, faculty and staff. From working on Admissions-related pieces used to recruit students to creating the Graduation Program that students keep as they leave the school, my work feels exciting and meaningful. The school offers staff many ways to be involved. I enjoy attending Prayers to hear new perspectives that expand my mind.
