Kelli Bauer

2nd Grade Teacher


I am excited to start the school year and get to know your child on a more personal level!  It is important to me to get to know each of my students individually. But right now I will let you get to know a little bit more about me!  

I am married with two little boys.  We live in Kearney. My husband, Randy, works for Nutrien Ag Solutions there in town.  Isaac is five and will be starting Kindergarten this year. Bennett is three and goes to Daycare/Preschool in Kearney.  We have enjoyed our summer together with lots of swimming and playing outside!

I was born in Albion, Nebraska.  My parents were both teachers there.  My mom, Dawn, taught music and my dad, Jeff, taught P.E. for many years in Albion. They both retired in 2016.  My dad recently passed away of cancer. So this last year has been a rough one for my family! I have one older sister named Trisha. She works at Creighton University in Omaha as a Professor at the college of nursing.  She is married to my brother-in-law, Travis. He is a pilot for SkyWest Airlines. They have two children. Logan is seven and Claire is one. I graduated from Boone Central High School in Albion in 2002. I went to college at Southeast Community College in Lincoln for one year and completed my general education classes.  I graduated from UNK with an endorsement in Elementary Education and a minor in Elementary Music Education in 2006. To further my career in teaching I decided to get my Masters in 2014 from UNK with a degree in Reading PreK-12. I received my first job at Kenesaw Public School in 2007 and have been here ever since!

I have loved working with the students over the years and am looking forward to a great year with my new class!

Employed with Kenesaw Public Schools since 2007.
