Kelly Chavis

Hi!! My name is Kelly Chavis, and I absolutely love to teach science - especially biology. I have a passion for teaching and working with kids. I want to show them that science is fun, enjoyable, and not that hard. I had great professors and teachers along my path who inspired me to teach and helped further my love for science. I have been teaching since 2005...all of which have been here at NHS. I teach both Biology and IB Biology, am co-advisor for the Environmental Science Club, serve as the Environmental Liaison for Northwestern High School, serve as a mentor teacher for student teachers as well as a peer evaluator for other science teachers, serve as the secretary on the NHS School Improvement Counsel, and have a passion for teaching in other countries as well as hosting teachers from other countries. I am married with one daughter, who currently attends NHS, and enjoy spending my free time traveling, reading, watching movies, and making memories with my family and friends.
