Meet Ms. Keeli Sanderson

E-mail: Keeli.Sanderson@sfasu.edu

Hello! My name is Keeli Sanderson, and I am beyond excited to join the SFA Charter School family as a second grade teacher this year. I graduated from SFA with my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies and formally worked as an aide/substitute at the SFA Charter School. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, spending time outdoors and most importantly spending time with family. My goal in the classroom is to create a positive, family-style environment for us to grow and learn together this school year. I am looking forward to an amazing year in second grade.

I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and majored in marketing. I began my second career of teaching in 2015 with 3-year-olds. I gained my EC-6 alternative certification in 2016, and I taught prekindergarten at Nacogdoches ISD for two years. This will be my third year in kindergarten at the SFA Charter School. I have two daughters, Bridget, who is an SFA Charter School student, and Kellen, an SFA Charter School graduate.

I worked with prekindergarten and kindergarten students as a teacher assistant at Nacogdoches ISD for 15 years. I joined the SFA Charter School family in August 2016. Working in kindergarten is a gratifying experience, and the academic and personal growth the students acquire throughout the year is amazing. I am looking forward to another successful year.
