Hi! Welcome to Kindergarten. My name is Kelsey Van Hook and I am one of five fantastic Kindergarten teachers at Whittier Elementary for the 2017-2018 school year. This will be my fifth year teaching Kindergarten and my sixth year teaching. I absolutely love this age and can't wait for another great year at Whittier.
I graduated from the University of Delaware in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary and Special Education. I am also Early Childhood Education certified. I am currently pursuing a Master's Degree at Hood College for Curriculum and Instruction.
On a personal note,I grew up in Frederick County and recently just bought a house of my own here! I attended Middletown Elementary, Middle and High. I coach the Middletown Middle School Girls Varsity basketball team during the winter months. In my spare time I love spending time with family and friends, being outdoors, reading novels and cheering on the Baltimore Ravens.
