Hello! I am Kelcie Orsinelli, a Kindergarten teacher at Chet F. Harritt!
This will be my fourth full year as a Kindergarten teacher in the Santee School District, although I have had a connection to our wonderful school for a little over 20 years as my mother also teaches at Chet F. Harritt as a second grade teacher! In fact, I started as a teacher in the same classroom and same grade level that she did 24 years ago. I have wanted to be a teacher since I was five years old, and am so grateful to be able to teach each and every child that walks through my classroom door!When I am not in the classroom, I am usually planning a fun trip around the U.S. or a new country to explore. Above are photos from my trip to England, Scotland, and Ireland. I love to travel, and always try to take advantage of our school breaks to learn about and experience a new place and culture! And in case the middle picture does not give it away...I LOVE to read and am a big geek about my favorite books (including but not limited to Harry Potter).I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me, and I am looking forward to learning more about all the new Kinder families this year!
