Educator of the Year 2017-2018


Hello Everyone,

     My name is Kelvenia Edwards. I am honored to represent Kemp Elementary as the 2017-2018 teacher of the year.  This is my 11th year teaching elementary school.  All of my teaching experience has been in Clayton County Public Schools.  I have a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and I am in the process of obtaining a Specialist degree in Media Technology.  I have 3 awesome children, 2 girls and 1 boy that I would move the earth for.  I was born and raised in Georgia, and I enjoy shopping and exposing my own children to the world around us. 

     I enjoy working with children and helping them reach their dreams through education.  I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect.  Education should empower children and help them to make positive contributions to our world.  I have worked in Title I schools my whole career, which has inspired to expose our children to our ever changing world. As a teacher, my goals are to encourage and inspire all students in and out of the classroom.  I try to let them know that they are capable of achieving their goals, and they shouldn’t be ashamed of their insecurities and imperfections.  I exceed all expectations as it pertains to providing a quality experience to any student, in and out of the classroom.  With the help of my administrators, Mrs. Davis and Dr. Wanton, I have started clubs and joined committees that have enhanced my experiences and given me additional tools and resources to pass on to my students.

     One of my favorite quotes is that “6+3=9 but so does 5+4...The way you do things is not always the only way to do them...Respect other people's way of thinking.” I pass this information on to my students every day, and push them to reach their highest potential. Last but not least, I’m grateful for the support of my family and friends who continue to support me in my journey. Thank you Kemp Elementary for entrusting me with this honor.
