• My name is Mrs. Kelly Farris, and I get to teach 6th and 7th grade Language Arts and Reading as well as 6th grade Religion here at SSPP!


    My family and I just moved here from Ellicott City, Maryland.  I have two sons, Nathan (11) and Matthew (7).   My husband grew up in Crystal Lake and has always wanted to move back here.  We have been enjoying all that this beautiful area has to offer.  Our boys are avid fishermen, and we love to do anything outside! 


    This will be my 23rd year of teaching.  I began in the Baltimore County Public School System where I taught all subjects to mainly intermediate grades.  After several years at different schools in the county, I was blessed to stay home with my sons and tutor privately.  When I returned to the classroom, I taught 4th and 5th grade ELA and Religion at Our Lady of Perpetual Help.  I am so happy to continue these two content areas with your children in 6th grade here at SSPP!


    We will be reading several novels, writing extended pieces, expanding our vocabulary, working on our penmanship, becoming great spellers, and overall having a great time every day we are blessed to have together.


    The Mission for the Class


    My mission is to foster the development of confident, faith-filled, active learners who seek to transform their community and make the world a better, more loving place.


    “Whatever you do, work with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.  It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”

    Colossians 3:23-24
