Blue Cats


My name is Beth Kelly. I am the Blue Cat teacher at the Pre K. I have taught 3rd grade in Whitfield County at Valley Point Elementary and taught 2nd grade for Calhoun Primary School. I have been a stay at home mom for 10 years with my 3 children.  
I am a high school graduate of Calhoun High School in 1994.  I attended the University of West Georgia and earned a Bachelors in Science in Early Childhood Education in 1999. I have a ESOL certificate attached to my degree to certify that I can work with students as English as a second language.  I was married to my husband, Kurt Kelly in July of 1999. We have a farm with 6 chicken houses, cattle, and a sod farm.  I enjoy working with children and seeing them progress in learning and social development!

Hello, my name is Maria Reyes. I’m the assistant teacher in the Blue Cats classroom. I am proud to be part of the Yellow Jacket family where I have been teaching for 6 years. My husband Gerardo and I have four daughters, Bianka who is a Calhoun High graduate, Valery a Senior at Calhoun High, Vivian who is in 7th grade at Calhoun middle, and my youngest Vexy.   We are also proud grandparents to our handsome grandson Leonel.
I earned my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia Northwestern Technical College and I am currently working towards my Bachelor’s degree at Western Governors University. I have always had a passion for teaching and I’m extremely happy to be a part of this school system. I love working with preschool students and I believe that this is one of the most important ages for development and learning. I look forward to working with you and your child this year!
