Mrs. Clara Kelly

Welcome! I teach College and Career Ready English 12 and Dual Enrollment English 12.

Before becoming an Eagle, I was a Lumberjack. I finished my B.A. (English and Spanish) in 2012. After working in a communications role for NAU for several years, I realized I needed to spread my love of writing to others to feel fulfilled in my career. I went back to school to finish my M.A. (English, Secondary Education). I taught introduction writing classes at NAU from 2015 through 2017; this is my third year at FHS. I am so excited to teach and learn with you this year!

Please feel free to contact me via email ( with any questions. I will get back to you as quickly as possible.
