My name is Kelsey Karlson, and I am a middle school math teacher here in Chicago! After receiving my Bachelor's degree from DePauw University, I joined Teach for America in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There I taught math to grades 6-8 while obtaining my Master's Degree from Marquette University. After three years, I moved to Chicago and have been teaching sixth-grade math ever since. When I am not teaching or tutoring, I love spending time outside (running, boating, hiking, etc.) and traveling when I can! As someone who was not fond of math growing up, I love teaching it now and helping students feel confident and excited about their math skills.
