Meet Mrs. Conger

DSC_0191 Conger (Small)

My name is Kelly Conger and this is my twelfth 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.  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 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, spinning, 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, Mexico, 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 7 years and we have two beautiful, healthy daughters.  I am so fortunate to have such great family and friends to share all of lifes greatest experiences with.  My hope is that I can be a positive role model to my own children, as well as all of my students.
