Meet Mrs. Rich


    During non-school hours, I go by Kelsey and I am originally from Alexandria, Virginia. I have Ohio roots, however, in that a lot of my family is from the area and that I went to college at The University of Dayton (Go Flyers!). I moved back to Ohio after meeting my husband at my college roommate's wedding. After moving to Akron, I went back to school to get my Master's in Literacy Education and Reading Endorsement from the University of Akron. Following that, I started my career in Jackson at Lake Cable Elementary as the Little Cubs Reading teacher. The 2021-2022 school year will be my eleventh year of teaching and my seventh year at Strausser (where I have taught both second and third grade). When I'm not at school, I like to spend time with my husband Adam, my daughters Ellie and Lucy, my wonderful family and friends, and our mini goldendoodle Oxford! I am excited for the upcoming year and the opportunity to work with such a great group of students!
