The Academy

Kelly Watson - 5th Grade

I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho.  I moved here in 1985 to attend I.S.U.  I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with a minor in humanities and a component in reading.  After graduating, for a short time I worked as an aide at CreAct and as a teacher in the After School Program at Jefferson Elementary.  In 1994, I began teaching 6th grade at Inkom Elementary.  I have taught 6th, 3rd, and 4th grades for the first 12 years of teaching. Currently, I am teaching 5th grade here at the Academy. I also have a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction/Literacy.

 I am married to Scott Watson, and we have two sons, Joel and Colby.  We also have 4 grandchildren, Gavin, Nevaeh, Zoe, and Taylor.

My favorite activities are centered around my family, the arts, travel, and the outdoors. 

It is an honor for me to be here at the Academy.  I am here because I believe in the Harbor Method.  What a privilege to be part of this culture, and to work with such outstanding people!
