My name is Kelly Rothgeb and this is my 21st year of teaching. This is my second year at Heritage Elementary and I'm thilled to be here; especially in first grade. I'm married to Tim and we have 4 children ranging from ages 16-27. Not too long ago, two of our own children attended Heritage Elementary and they are now in 11th and 12th grade. The other two attended GCISD schools K-12 and are now out of college and working in Dallas and Austin. I have lived in this area and been a parent at HES for many years. This is an innovative, forward thinking district and I'm excited about being an employee in the district I've resided in for years. I come to HES this year having taught 1st and 2nd grade as well as having been a Reading Recovery teacher, teacher leader and Reading Specialist. When I'm not working, I enjoy scrapbooking, photography, spending time with my family, volunteering in the community, shopping and home decorating/designing.
Thank you for entrusting your most precious child to me. I have a great deal of passion for teaching and learning. I hope to foster this love to all the students I am blessed to have in my classroom this year.
