Ms. MaryAnne Kelly joins Pueblo High School this 2023-24 school year as the new college algebra teacher.
Kelly previously taught at University High School but chose to transition to PHS for the opportunity to teach dual enrollment class, giving students the chance to earn college credit.
Although she is new to Pueblo this is hardly Kelly’s first year as a teacher.
“This is my 39th year teaching,” Kelly said, “but coming to a new school is exciting and challenging.”
She added, “I hope my legacy at Pueblo is that people will remember me fondly and really learn math,” Kelly said.
Kelly comes to Pueblo with an impressive collegiate record…
She has earned many degrees from multiple schools including a Bachelor’s of Arts, a Bachelor’s of Science, a Post Bachelor’s Degree in Math/Science Education, a Master’s in Education, a Graduate Certificate in ED Media, and a certificate in Community College Teaching (Math)—from various colleges, including the University of Arizona, Northern Arizona University and Arizona State University.
She said that she will be attending online classes studying abstract algebra at the University of Northern Colorado.
Kelly said that she felt the magic of Pueblo High School from the very beginning and added, “My students are personable and don’t give up, and I look forward to teaching math to all of them.”
