Mrs. Kelly Paul

Hello!  My name is Kelly Paul, and I am thrilled to teach 8th grade English at New Hartford Central School.  This is my 28th year of teaching, and I absolutely love what I do. It truly is a privilege and honor to work with New Hartford families and community members.  

I am originally from Sherrill, NY, which is where many of my family members still live.  I graduated from VVS (I was Kelly Burns), and then graduated from SUNY Oswego. In 2007 our family moved to New Hartford after living in Ilion (my husband, Eric's, hometown). Our two wonderful daughters, Madelynn and Christina, keep us quite busy. Madelynn graduated from Boston College in 2018...GO EAGLES, and is now at Boston University Medical School. Christina is also in Boston where she is a junior at Boston University...GO TERRIERS. 

In addition, we have a golden retriever puppy, Khaleesi, who keeps us on our toes. Often you will see me out and about with her as she learns how to be a good puppy!  

As you might imagine, I love reading and talking about books. My favorite place is the library, and my idea of a perfect day is being curled up with a good book. The novels we read in class are some of my all time favorites, and the fact that I get to reread them each year is one of the millions of reasons why I love teaching English.
In closing, I look forward to a fabulous school year with you. Thank you, in advance, for your hard work and effort.  Together, we will make sure that 2019-20 is a year you won't soon forget!
