Hi, Lindsay! My name is Kelley, and I am a senior at Hunterdon Central. I just turned eighteen two days after Christmas, and I have lived in New Jersey for about seven years. I have a fifteen-year-old brother named Corey, and I also live with my mom, my dad, and my dog, Killeen. I do not do any sports, but I work at a dental office every day after school. I am in a few clubs in my school, so I go to the meetings after school. I also like to write; it is one of my favorite things to do. Writing short stories is my favorite thing to write, but I enjoy any type of writing. I also like to read, and my favorite author is Pat Conroy. You probably have not read any of his books yet because they are very long, but he is a very Southern writer, so you may like him when you get older. Next year, I am going to Penn State University, but I do not know exactly what I am going to major in because there are so many options, but I will probably end up majoring in something that involves writing.
Now that you know a little bit about me, I want you to know that I am very excited to start doing this whole thing with you and your class. You guys seem very open to learning new things, and we are just as excited to help you out with anything you need. I also want you to know that I am very excited to learn a little bit about you throughout the next few weeks. Just remember that if you have any questions with any of your writing or whatever, you can let me know and I will do what I can to help you out. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to proofread anything for you; I would be very happy to help you!
