Ms. Christina Rios-Kelley, M.Ed.

Welcome to an exciting new year!

I am Ms. Rios-Kelley and I’m so excited to be at Nahed Chapman New American Academy, teaching your 1st grade scholars.

I am a product of St. Louis Public Schools (CJA, and Central Visual and Performing Arts High School) and though I moved away, I now live in South St. Louis with my husband, our four children, one cat, and two VERY well-fed guinea pigs.

This year will undoubtedly bring many questions and we are only going to be able to solve them together, so please know that you are ESSENTIAL to my teaching practice this year and always and please contact me with any and all concerns.

I will continue to send out messages through Talking Points, but we also have a ClassDojo account and I would love to add any adults to it that would like to see how their scholars are doing. 

Thank you for your support!
