Mrs. Kelli Ruley, Sixth grade
Hello! I am a graduate of Chico State and I have taught at a variety of schools before discovering Nord, but the moment I set foot on this campus I fell in love with it! I have been teaching at Nord since 2005 and loving every minute of it! My husband and I have lived in Chico for 33 years where we have raised our two boys. During weekends and in the summertime we grab our dogs and head to the mountains where we enjoy the tall trees, fresh air, and peaceful lakes; or we head to the coast where we enjoy the cool air and clamming, crabbing, and fishing. One of the things I love about teaching 6th graders is that they come into middle school wide-eyed and very nervous, but they leave 6th grade as responsible, confident, and capable students. I love seeing the journey they take as they grow into their middle school experience, and it is my honor to be able to guide them and help them navigate this adventure!
