Mrs. Kelli Colarusso

Welcome to Washington Elementary School!  I am very excited to be the Teaching Principal for WES this year.  I have worked in the classroom at WES for 9 years and started my leadership role last year as the Teaching Associate Prinipcal.  I am excited to continue leading WES and working with the families and community in Washingotn.  In addition to being the Principal, I will be teaching math and science to our upper grades.  Teaching has been my passion since fourth grade, so continuing to teach and lead is the best of both worlds!  

I am a proud alumni of Keene State College, and I have worked at WES since 2011.   I grew up in New Hampshire and love everything it has to offer.  Having grown up in the Lakes Region, I love spending time on and in the water!  I also enjoy hiking, and I hope to check off many of the 4,000 footers in NH.  Teaching students about our beautiful state is something I'm extremely passionate about.  I love making learning a hands-on experience, and I try to provide choice in many of the projects we do in our school.  It's also important to learn from the experts around us, and I love collaborating with our small community.
