Kelly McElhinny


Hello and welcome to the 2023-2024 school year. My name is Kelly McElhinny (she/her), and this year I will be teaching Algebra, Foundations and Science of Comp and Coding 1. I spend a lot of time working with a growth mindset in my classroom and the belief that mistakes are great.

My hobbies include reading, photography, exercise and hanging out with family and friends.

I am also a proud parent to my son, who is a freshman at UMD, and my daughter, who is in 8th grade.

The best things about math: Math is all around us and helps us understand the world we live in better. Math is also used in practically every career in some way.

If you have any questions, please let me know!  The best way to reach me is via email (kelly.mcelhinny@spps.org).
