• An apple a day... My name is Erin Kelly and I teach third grade at JoAnna Connell School.  I am pleased to say that I am in my 22nd year of teaching in the Erie School District.  I have taught third grade level Life Skills Support, third grade (all subjects), as well as fifth grade English Language Arts.  I throroughly enjoy working with children and helping them to grow in many ways! My specialty is Science and creative problem solving.  I absolutely love when former students pop in to say hello and talk about life and how they have changed.  I hope to continue to make a positive impact on students in my last years at Connell.
