    Welcome! My name is Mrs. Kellander and this is my fifth year on the fifth grade team at Park Forest Elementary School. Before becoming a PFE Penguin, I taught sixth grade for eight years at Park Forest Middle School. 

    I’m looking forward to an a-m-a-z-i-n-g year! New adventures, new challenges, new books (YES!). Of course, our journey together will have winding curves, ups and downs, and may even throw us for a loop, but we will grow and learn together, posing questions, discovering new things about ourselves, others, and our world. :-)
