Mrs. Kelly Lynn Kalchik

I am very excited to be an 8th grade Science teacher here at Trussville. I was born and raised in Michigan. I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Civil Engineering. While working as an engineer, I even worked at the Kennedy Space Center down in Florida for a while. I dreamed of being an astronaut when I was a kid, so working at the Space Center was a dream come true for me. After being an engineer for almost 9 years, I decided I wanted to work with children, so I became a teacher.

I've lived in many different places including Michigan, Florida, South Texas, Slovakia, and now Alabama. I love to travel and explore new areas and cultures. I live in Trussville with my husband and have 2 daughters. They both attend Trussville City Schools - one in 8th grade and one in 10th grade. We also have 2 cats.
