 Meet Mrs. Conger

 

My name is Kelly Conger and this is my tenth year teaching for the Swan Valley School District.  I am so proud to be a Viking!  I spent the first six years of my career as a third grade teacher, and I am now extremely excited to be a part of the physical education program for grades K-5 for the fourth year.  I graduated from Hemlock High School in 1997 and went on to pursue a teaching degree at Michigan State University.  Following my completion of that program I received a Masters degree from Saginaw Valley State University, and have also completed over 30 hours of additional training through Learner’s Edge.

Fitness has always been an important aspect of my life.  I stay active by being involved in a variety of sports and activities such as basketball, volleyball, golf, running, kickboxing, weight lifting, biking, plyometrics, Pure Barre, and much more.  I also love to travel and hike.  I have traveled throughout most of the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and have spent time backpacking through Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.  I spent my honeymoon backpacking through Yellowstone National Park and Jackson, Wyoming.  While traveling I always like to try new things.  I have been whitewater rafting, skydiving, canyoning, parasailing, hot air ballooning, and swimming with dolphins.  I hope to continue to add to my list of adventures in the future.

My life revolves around my wonderful family and friends.  I have been married to my husband Bryan for 5 years and we have two beautiful, healthy daughters.  I am so fortunate to have such great family and friends both here in our Viking family, as well as in my own personal life!

Please feel free to contact me throughout the year with any concerns, questions, or ideas that can help to make our fitness and health program even more successful. Shields Elementary PE office 921-4746 or Havens Elementary PE office 921-4265
