Principal Gary Palermo: “Both Kelly and Margaret (Peggy) are extremely valuable members of our Pagels School Community. They work directly with students in every grade, provide support for our classroom teachers, and are experts in their subject area. I am proud and fortunate to have two extremely gifted educators working at Pagels.
About: I teach reaching and have been teaching for 23 years. I began my teaching career in Milford at East Shore Middle School. This is my 11th year as a Reading Consultant at Pagels Elementary School.
Hobbies: I enjoy reading, baking, and spending time with my family.
Fun Facts: I have been married for 26 years and have 2 children, Brendan and Brian, who are both in college. Most people do not know that I am the youngest of 8 and my husband is the youngest of 7, so family gatherings are quite a large crowd. Family dinners was a minimum of 10 people all sitting around the dining room table when I was growing up!
About: I am a Math Facilitator and work with teachers and students in grades K-4. I have been teaching for 40 years: 5 as a classroom teacher at Pagels teaching 2nd and 3rd grade, 15 at Forest teaching 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade, and for the past 20 years, I’ve been a Math Facilitator for Forest, Savin Rock, Haley, Mackrille, and Pagels, where I have been teaching full-time now for 7 years.
Hobbies: My hobbies include crafting, reading, spending time with family and friends, and traveling.
Fun Facts: Besides teaching, my daughters and grandchildren are the greatest joy in my life and traveling to be with them has taken me to North Carolina, Qatar, Germany, and France. Next stop will be England!
