Kelly Lemmons

Teachers and staff at New Market voted...

The results were tallied....

and  KELLY LEMMONS was selected as the 2023-2024 Teacher of the Year! 

Kelly moved to New Market to teach 5th grade math this school year, but she has brought so much to our school in the time she has been here! 

Some of Kelly's favorite moments of teaching are the pure excitement of seeing students be happy about the little things, hearing their stories, allowing them time to share about themselves, and becoming a part of their life. She is always cheering them on, encouraging them to try new things, seeing kindness and generosity everyday at work.
