    About Me
    Welcome to our classroom!  My name is Kelly Trudelle and this is my 21st year teaching at Troutman Elementary. I taught Kindergarten for 15 years and this is my sixth year teaching first grade! I really enjoy working with the students and the staff here at TES. I was honored to be chosen as the 2007-2008 TES Teacher of the Year and was a finalist for the district Teacher of the Year. I received National Board Certification in 2007.
    About 21 years ago, I moved to North Carolina from Connecticut in order to teach. Prior to moving, I earned degrees in Elementary Education as well as Developmental Psychology at Keene State College, which is located in Keene, New Hampshire.
    After living in Statesville, Charlotte, Concord and Huntersville, I now enjoy living right here in Troutman. My family consists of my husband Pete, our thirteen year old son Zack, and our son Cameron. We have a pet cat, Luna and a new puppy, Milo. When I am not focusing on my students, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, crafting, watching baseball and football (I'm a huge Red Sox and Patriots fan!), scrapbooking and being with my friends.  I look forward to an enriching year for you and your child!
