My name is Kelly Stapleton.  The 2017-2018 school year will be my third year as a teacher at Manley Elementary. My first two years were spent in third grade, but I am very excited to begin my journey in fifth. Before coming to Manley, I was a part-time preschool teacher at a private school in Kingsport.  I graduated from East Tennessee State University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.  After graduating, I immediately enrolled in ETSU's MEd program and received my MEd in Elementary Education in December of 2015.  I  also served as an adjunct for ETSU during the Spring 2016 and Spring 2017 semesters.  Teaching has always been my passion, and I am very thankful for the opportunity to fulfill that passion at Manley Elementary.
