Kelly Keeler works for the Center for Math and Science Teaching as a STEM Curriculum Developer. Kelly's passion for education began in 2006 when she joined Teach for America in Los Angeles. After completing her two year commitment with TFA, in addition to obtaining a Master's Degree in Secondary Education from LMU, Kelly continued to teach middle school science for three years. Kelly then left the formal classroom to professionally develop teachers at the California Science Center. In this position, Kelly gained insight in informal learning strategies, such as student-driven learning, and gained expertise on how to incorporate these strategies into the formal learning environment. In her free time, Kelly enjoys being a mom and doing anything/everything outdoors with her family.
