More than 20 years ago, Kelly Harmon, MAEd, began teaching. Her first class was composed of at-risk learners. That began a lifelong passion for increasing all student achievement with a very special focus on those students most at risk. Her two decades of experience and passion have led her from teaching to leadership roles to her position at Learning Sciences, where she makes a difference in students' lives every day by supporting teacher effectiveness. She earned her master's degree at University of Texas, San Antonio.
