My name is Kelly Rothgeb and this is my 24th year of teaching. This is my fourth year at Heritage Elementary and I'm thrilled to be here; especially in first grade.  I'm married to Tim and we have 4 children ranging from ages 18 to 29. Not too long ago, two of my own children attended Heritage Elementary and they are now in college.  The other two attended GCISD schools K-12 and are now out of college and working in Austin and Denver.
I have lived in this area and been a parent at HES for many years.

This is an innovative, forward thinking district and I'm excited about being an employee in the district I've resided in for years.  I come to HES having taught 1st and 2nd grade as well as having been a Reading Recovery teacher, teacher leader and Reading Specialist. When I'm not working, I enjoy scrapbooking, photography,  watching movies, spending time with my family, volunteering in the community, shopping and home decorating.

Thank you for entrusting your most precious child to me. I have a great deal of passion for teaching and learning. I hope to foster this love in all the students I am blessed to have in my classroom this year.
