Hi! My name is Chelsey Mitchell. I teach AIS Math at Barringer Road Elementary School.
How long have you been teaching or working in the district?
This is my first year at Central Valley.
What do you like best about what you do?
I love watching my students become excited about math. That moment when their practice and effort begins to pay off and the lightbulb is lit; I love that!
What event here at Central Valley CSD has made/makes a difference to you personally and in your career?
AIS Math has been my dream position for years – the opportunity to work at CV doing what I love in the first year that I was hired has been a dream come true!
Where were you educated?
I attended Canajoharie Senior High School. I earned my BA in Childhood Education at SUNY Oneonta and received my MS online through the American College of Education.
If you could do anything on a weekend, what would you do?
I really enjoy visiting friends and taking day trips to places that I’ve never been.
What book and/or author are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading a book by Beverly Lowry; but I also like Gillian Flynn and Erica Spindler.
If we were to listen to your iPod or sound system, what would be playing?
The genre would most likely be country, but I have a little bit of everything.
What is your favorite television show/movie/actor?
I like The Big Bang Theory, Blacklist, and Grey’s Anatomy.
What one thing would you share that people might not know about you?
I like working on DIY projects and scrapbooking/crafting in my free time.
