Ms. Maher - Kindergarten

Mrs. Maher

Hello, my name is Kelley Maher and this is my 17th year at Abner Gibbs! Previously I taught a year of fifth grade at Franklin Avenue and many years at many different preschools in the area. I love kindergarten the best! Your child will make unbelievable accomplishments this year ! They will read and write by the end of the year ! How cool is that !?

I have lived in Westfield my entire life and I myself am a product of Westfield Public Schools, I attended Abner Gibbs in the fifth grade ! I have, one dog named Lucky and two fabulous daughters, Nikki who is a graphic designer in Rhode Island and Becca who is a graduate student at Bay Path University studying occupational therapy at the Holyoke Soldiers home. I am hoping to be a grandmother soon!


In kindergarten, we are just as busy working on social emotional skills  as well as academics ! We are a community of learners and we care for and respect each other everyday ! Come in and see for yourself! 

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me at:   or call the main office 413 572-6418. I will get back to you as soon as possible!

The most important thing you can do for your child is to READ, READ, READ everyday!
