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.
