Ms. D. Noel McKelvey
I am so excited about this school year!
For those who haven't met me yet, my name is Noel McKelvey. You may see "Darlyn" McKelvey on several forms, and on my school email adress, but I have always gone by my middle name in every other scenario. Thanks Mom!
As an ELA teacher, I have worked with all manner of students, from every imaginable background. I take a somewhat holistic approach when it comes to teaching, as I believe in the power of creativity, stories, and relationships to truly reach these amazing students. I promise to NEVER give a packet of worksheets. EVER.
I have two degrees: B.A. English, and B.S. Christian Ministries/Biblical Studies. I have lived in several different states and towns, but North Carolina is home. I have two daughters who are the loves of my life: Tessa is a stylist and lives in Greensboro, NC. Alexaya is a SENIOR at Montreat College near Asheville. ( How did that happen?? )
I have been teaching for close to 16 years, but have been working with teens and children for most of my adult life, in one capacity or another.
I am always creating something; artwork, a new recipe or a personal blogpost.
Please feel free to reach out at anytime and let's make this school year amazing!
