English | Kelly Kohler joins the Valley Catholic Middle School community as a 6th, 7th, and 8th grade language arts teacher. Previously, Kelly taught middle and high school language arts in Honolulu HI.

Kelly earned her bachelor’s in education and English from Villanova University in 2016 and then joined the University of Portland’s PACE program. During her time in the program, Kelly had the opportunity to teach at a private school on Oahu. She learned an enormous amount about the culture from her students and staff and will forever cherish the experience. In 2018 she graduated from the PACE program with a master’s in education and a concentration in reading.

When Kelly is not teaching, she loves to stay active by doing yoga, running, hiking, and traveling to new places. In addition, she is always grateful to go back to her home city of Chicago and visit her family and friends.
