Mrs. Bente P. Kelly
Hello! My name is Bente P. Kelly, although I am known as Mrs. Kelly or Ms. K. I am currently the library science teacher/librarian at Bateman, but I was a classroom teacher for five years prior. I truly enjoy working with students in the library helping them locate the information they need while teaching them critical thinking and research skills in the process.
I was born and raised in Denmark but have lived in Chicago for the past 20 years now. I have two young children - both in CPS - and I am married to a Chicagoan of Irish-American decent. Our family also consists of a dog, a hamster, and two goldfish. I enjoy reading, gardening, organizing, and practicing my Spanish. (Necesito practicarlo.)
If you have any questions about the Battle of the Books, our Scholastic Book Fairs or the library program at Bateman for example, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. You may also find further library related information here. Happy Reading!
