Mrs. Skelly has seven years of teaching experience and for the past six years has been with DoDEA schools, teaching second and third grade at Mannheim Elementary School. She is a graduate of Northwest Missouri State University with a Bachelor's of Science Degree and a Master's of Science Degree in Education. She has earned a Certification in Gifted Education from the University of Missouri and a Certification in Reading and Language Arts from the University of Maryland.

Mrs. Skelly firmly believes that we need to turn our schools around and again make them academically challenging, secure, and cultivating. To accomplish this goal she feels educators must have a vision in which they start at the core of their school and work outward. When an entire school staff has an image of what their school could be, and begins working closely together, the vision becomes clearer. A parent of a former student shares this insight. "Some teachers can be experts in their subject matter, others can be extremely amiable, but few can put it all together and are able to inspire a love for learning. Mrs. Skelly is one such teacher."
