Mrs. Kelly Thao 

Second Grade

Hello! My name is Kelly Thao and I am one of the second 2nd grade teachers here at STREAM Charter School. I have been fortunate enough to have served in a variety of educational settings and am looking forward to my fifth year of teaching with STREAM. 


My first year of teaching, I was an Educational Specialist in which I served exceptional students with learning differences from grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. After that, I taught in an Autism Only Special Day Class where I gained some of my most valuable teaching skills. Whether it is literacy, numeracy, social, or living needs, I believe that all students should have access to the tools they need to reach their fullest academic potential. Students are capable of many great things when they are given resources that best fits their needs! 


I have an A.S degree in Social and Behavioral Health Sciences, a B.A degree in Liberal Studies with a minor in Special Education, and two cleared Teaching Credentials in the areas of General Education and Special Education Mild/Mod. Having a Special Education credential and the background knowledge has helped me tremendously in the General Education classroom setting. Not all students learn to the same degree and I am thankful to have an extra set of skills that may benefit my learners. 


When I am not in my classroom, I am either tending to my garden of succulents or soaking in family time! My husband and I welcomed our newest baby girl in May and we have a 20 months old daughter who loves being a big sister! My little family and I enjoy road trips, ocean fishing, food parties, and nap parties! 


The school culture at STREAM Charter and its mission to equip students with life and academic excellence to develop future leaders is phenomenal and a dream I am thrilled to be a part of. I am eager to share with my students an everlasting impression on how important their education is and hope that my students love learning as much as I do!
