Hello and welcome! My name is Kayla Whiteley, and I am a 1st grade teacher at Northview Elementary. I graduated from Morehead State University in the fall of 2012 with a degree in Elementary Education, and I also earned my Masters Degree through Univeristy of the Cumberlands in 2016 as part of the Literacy Specialist program. This is my sixth year teaching in Montgomery County, and my first year in 1st grade! I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful school where the students are loved well. I strive to make learning student-centered and believe students learn best when given the opportunity to explore and discover on their own with just the right amount of support and scaffolding. I have high expectations for all of my students, both behaviorally and academically. I know, without a doubt, that each student can meet these goals with hard work and dedication.
I am a Clark County native where I graduated from George Rogers Clark in 2007. I wore a Cardinals cheer uniform back then, but I'm quite comfortable cheering for the MoCo Indians now! I have two young children, Kaiden and Kali Grace, and they keep me very busy! I love to be outdoors, and I also enjoy watching sports, spending time with family and friends, crafting, painting furniture, and shopping at Target.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have. I value parent-teacher communication and look forward to hearing from you!
It's going to be a wonderful year!
