I am Kaylin Keyes and I am the Site Coordinator at Roosevelt-McGrath Elementary in Wayne. I have worked in several buildings throughout Wayne-Westland and worn many hats in the district. I student taught at Hamilton Elementary, was a Reading Interventionist at Wildwood Elementary and was a teacher at both David Hicks Elementary and Marshall Upper Elementary. I have been working for EMU Bright Futures since 2015 as a Student Program Instructor and vendor at David Hicks Elementary while being a teacher there during the daytime and continued my position at David Hicks’ Bright Futures while as a teacher at Marshall as well. I am thrilled that I was able to continue working in Wayne-Westland because I love the amazing students, families and co-workers I get the pleasure of working with daily. I love Bright Futures because I get to see students in a different light and connect with them over their passions and I still pinch myself that I am able to be a Bright Futures Site Coordinator full time!
I obtained my Bachelor’s in Education with a Language Arts major from Michigan State University in 2009 and also received my endorsement in Cognitive Impairments K-12 through Eastern Michigan University in 2011. I plan to continue my Master’s in Special Education beginning Winter semester 2019.
EMU Bright Futures at Roosevelt-McGrath Elementary serves second, third, and fourth grade students. Our program goals are academic intervention and extensions, social-emotional learning, student voice/choice and active student engagement. Club offerings at R-M include Seasonal Crafts, Engineering Experts, Ultimate Challenge, Helping Hands, Tech Madness and many more! We are a brand-new site at Roosevelt-McGrath but we are already feeling the love from all of the staff, parents and students. We will continue to strengthen our program this year and we are already off to a great start!
