Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kelly Farmer
Hello everyone! I am Kelly Farmer, a Native San Diegan, raised in the East County. I attended elementary school at W.D. Hall Elementary, and junior high at Greenfield Junior High; both are part of the Cajon Unified School District. I went to high school at Granite Hills High School in El Cajon, and graduated in 1989. I attended the University of California at San Diego and majored in Political Science - Public Policy Analysis. I received my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at California State University at San Marcos in May 2009. I completed my Master’s Degree in School Counseling last winter from Point Loma Nazarene University.
I have two teenage children, ages 17 and 14 who attend school in Ramona. They are the loves of my life, and provide me with valuable insight into the lives and struggles of today’s adolescents. My passion is living an active and healthy life. I spend my free time surfing, paddle boarding, running, and crossfitting – and skiing whenever we are lucky enough to get snow!
What speaks to me most clearly in Cajon Park’s Mission Statement is the theme of educational transformation through creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. There cannot be any reasonable argument made against the need of this country, the richest and freest in the world, to provide a high-quality, inclusive, exceptional education to the citizens of this country. Kids are citizens, too! The acquisition of an education is the most sought after privilege in the world. It is a path out of poverty; a path toward justice. As stated best by Henry Brooks Adams, “education makes people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern, but impossible to enslave.”
I am so excited to be a member of this exceptional staff. I am dedicated to serving the students of Cajon Park and look forward to establishing strong relationships with my students and families. I want to bring passion and excitement to education, while providing my students with a safe, authentic and joyful learning experience
