Having started teaching at Slinger in 1993, Mrs. Keliher has been working at Slinger for a while. Slinger High School is also her only teaching job, and she hasn’t taught at any other schools. Outside of school, her hobbies include walking with her husband, working out, along with singing in the car. When asked about her favorite book, she said 1000 Splendid Suns; a book taught in one of her classes, it is also liked by many students. However, she could not decide what author is her favorite as she has about 10 different writers she likes.

Mrs. Keliher was inspired by her English teachers to become a teacher, “They taught me ‘service learning’ that connected the classroom to the community.”

She says that if she weren’t a teacher, she most likely would work at some sort of volunteer center. By no surprise, as a high schooler, Mrs. Kelliher’s favorite subject was English. Mrs. Erdmann is someone that she looks up to as she is very inspiring and a great teacher. “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference” can be found on the wall in her room and is also her favorite quote. Mrs. Keliher is certainly an inspiring teacher herself.
