Frank Kelley is a true New Englander. He has lived in all six states, and makes his home now in a solar-powered house in Vermont. His early days were spent outside of Boston, watching the Red Sox and the Patriots. He was the child that could be found out in the woods, turning over rocks, and looking for critters. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and a Masters degree in Secondary Education. His love of nature and kids has given him the opportunity to bring his students to Peaks Island in Casco Bay, Maine, up to the top of Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, and to the shores of Lake Champlain in Vermont. In each setting, he tries to design experiences that allow the students to function as scientists. Mr. Kelley has been teaching for 22 years and currently teaches 5th and 6th grade at Chester-Andover Elementary School in Chester, Vermont.
