Ms. Kayleigh Kelp
I am honored to be the new assistant principal at Monte Vista Middle School and serve the students and families of this wonderful community!
I have worked as an elementary teacher for 8 years, most recently at Pleasant Valley School of Engineering & Arts. Throughout my time as an educator, I always sought out leadership positions and have participated on various committees and in leadership groups. My core values are integrity, relationships, efficiency, empowerment, and support. I use these values to guide my personal and professional life. I have found that these values contribute to positive leadership skills and provide me with the confidence to lead effectively. I believe in creating positive learning environments for students and staff, where individuals feel safe, respected, and valued. I am passionate about restorative justice practices and equity education for special education students. I am eager to work collaboratively with our community to best meet the needs of all our students. My ultimate goal as an educator is to coach teachers and students to be their best selves. I want to instill and motivate life-long learners and prepare all students to be successful in society. I want to inspire kids to work hard and be good people!
I obtained my Bachelor's degrees from Purdue University in both Elementary Education and Special Education. My boyfriend and I moved to California three years ago when I started teaching at PVSEA. This past spring, I finished my Master’s degree and credential program in Educational Leadership at CSUCI. I have a passion for education and love working with students of all ages. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, traveling, art, watching movies, and spending time with my dog, Reggie.
I am excited for the opportunity to transition into administration and to work within the Camarillo community. I look forward to building relationships with all our students, families, and staff.
I am very happy to be a part of the Monte Vista family. Go Toros!
