Hello Cougar Families!

My name is Liz Kelly-Sell, and I am the English Language Learner Teacher at Carpenter Elementary School. This is my 3rd year at Carpenter Elementary, much to my delight. I work with students who speak a different language at home, and this is my dream job. I love working with students in small groups, and seeing how fast they grow!

I am an Ann Arbor native, and then attended U of M for both my Bachelors and my Masters. While I love Ann Arbor, I explore as many other cities and countries as possible. So far I have studied abroad in Italy, England, and Greece (with a semester in Washington DC as well). I love to learn about other cultures, which lead me towards the Hikone-Ann Arbor Exchange Program. This is an AAPS program for Middle School students that connects us to our sister schools in Hikone, Japan. We welcome the Hikone Delegates into our homes for about a week, and then we travel to visit with them a month later. It's a wonderful program, that I love supporting!

When I'm home, I love walking in parks, cooking, reading, U of M Football games, and taking pictures. My husband and I have two furry pups who love to cuddle and meet people, and I often write stories about them with my students. 

I love to talk with families, so come say hi! I know we will have a great year together.
