My name is Leila Kelly. I am currently studying at Montclair State University pursuing my Master’s degree in Early Education. In addition to being able to teach preschool through 3rd grade, I will graduate with a certification to teach special education as well. Ever since I was in 2nd grade I knew I wanted to be a teacher, and I absolutely adore children. I am an assistant teacher in Class 3 in the morning and Class 5 in the afternoon. I have been with Palisades since late September of 2022. I love the environment this school exhibits for all of our students. I enjoy taking long hikes along the Alpine Lookout in my free time!
