Hello! My name is Kelli Elder and I am an Oconee County High School graduate (class of 1998) and an Oconee County resident of more than 25 years. I teach Advanced 5th Grade Reading and Language Arts, as well as 3rd and 5th grade PACE at Oconee County Elementary School. I have been teaching since 2005. During those years, I have taught first grade, second grade, and fourth grade at Walker Park Elementary School in Walton County. I love teaching and love watching children explore and grow in their knowledge.
I am married to my best friend Michael Elder of 14 years and we have four boys, Michael (12), Lee (9), John (7) and Thomas (4). We farm as a family hobby, raising chickens and show pigs. We are also members of Watkinsville First Baptist Church. We value family!
