Kelly Sweeney

I am a proud mother of two beautiful daughters, who keep me very busy. I spend the majority of my time supporting them on their many endeavors. Most of my time has been spent taking and watching them as they participate in soccer, tennis, dance, or whatever else they are into at the time. I believe family is extremely important, my favorite time is spending time with those dear to me.

I’m a Graduate from Concord University with a degree in Education. I’ve worked in this profession for 14 years. I’ve taught Elementary school and currently I am a teacher at Beckley Stratton Middle School. I truly believe children are our greatest resource. I feel society should invest more resources in our youth, they will be leading our future.

I attend church regularly and believe how important it is to reach out and show our love to others. I love to get lost in a good book or movie. I definitely love to laugh. I enjoy the outdoors, I never get tired of sitting by the ocean. However, these beautiful West Virginia mountains will always be my home.
