Hello, my name is Kelly Berry, and I’m so excited to join PPA as the office manager! I’ve been married for 24 years, and we have three amazing children. My oldest child, Lauren, is a junior at Western State Colorado University, and my middle child, Jake, will be a freshman at the same college. My “baby” will be a sophomore at ThunderRidge High School, and we have two crazy pups that make us laugh every day! I started my career with my B.A. in History and Secondary Education Certification, and I taught at Aurora Central High School until I started my own family.
After being a stay at home mom for a number of years, I returned to an education setting at my children’s school, Trailblazer Elementary, as a paraprofessional and as an aide for severe needs special education students. A decade later I transitioned into the office of a start-up charter school. Helping the school run smoothly and allowing teachers, students and families to get the information/support they need has been a great fit for me. I’m looking forward to creating an amazing school surrounded by passionate people that are just as motivated as I am!
