Mrs. Kelsey Pycior
Greetings, Historians! My name is Kelsey Pycior (pice-eeyore) (formerly Valentino). I've been working in Education since 2015 (2011 if you count my four undergraduate education placements and year of substitute teaching). I graduated cum laude from Rider University with a double major in Secondary Education and History, with a minor in American Studies. I've been a teacher at Manville High School since 2019.
In my moments spent out of the classroom, I love spending time with my daughter and husband, visiting Hershey, Lake George, Wildwood Crest/Cape May, and Disney World, listening to 1960s and Sinatra-era music, volunteering with children's bereavement programs (CZC, TAPS, & PCB), and prematurely decorating my house for the holidays. If you need to get me off topic, just ask me about any of those things.
Over the course of my career, I have taught:
- AP US History
- Criminal Justice
- Current Events
- Kindergarten (co-teacher/1:1 aide)
- Modern American History
- US History 1
- US History 2 (ICR, College Prep, ELL, Advanced)
- World History
- World History Honors
