My name is Kelley Ryan. I am a secretary at Amherst St Elementary School. I began my journey with the Nashua School District in June 2021. Prior to working in Nashua, I was employed in the Pelham School District. I worked there for just over ten years as a lunch monitor, Gen Ed Instructional Assistant, Special Ed Assistant, Office Staff and Library Media Assistant. I received an opportunity to work in the office at Amherst St that allowed me more hours than I had been working in Pelham. I am so grateful and happy to be here. I truly love working in the educational system. I enjoy seeing the students grow and I love working with educators in all aspects. During my time in Pelham, I worked closely with our Union President and was also a building rep. I believe in the motto “be the change you want to see”. It is hard to make progress or change as an individual, but as a team or representative, it is easier to accomplish things. I am a true believer in fighting for what is right and listening to people’s concerns. Communication is key in any situation and I would like the opportunity to advocate for the secretaries of the Nashua School District. I think I would make a great secretary representative and I am honored to be considered.
