Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the PALS program at Emerick Elementary! My name is Kelly Larivey, and I am looking forward to a fantastic year. This is my 18th year of teaching. I graduated in 2002 from Canisius College, in Buffalo, NY; with a duel degree in elementary education and special education. I am currently taking additional classes to continue my education, and because as teachers we are life long learners. I am also a member of Who’s Who for American Teachers and Educator’s edition. I am excited to be on the PALS teaching team! I love chocolate and everything Disney! When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my husband and son, reading, and traveling.
I believe that all children can learn and have fun doing it. Within my classroom, my goal is to provide a positive learning environment and give students the tools that they need to succeed. I am looking forward to an exciting year as together we support the growth and learning of your child. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions; together we will make a great team!
