Kelly Gilmore

Lead Teacher

Half Day

Arboretum Location

Kelly is excited to be joining the BOPN team. She grew up in the Boston area and has fallen in love with the Arboretum. After spending many years working with children as a nanny, paraprofessional, and coach, she knew teaching was destined to be in her future. She has a Bachelors in Education and is a licensed in Elementary Education. She has worked for schools in Malden, Brookline, and Newton and finds importance in giving children the freedom to be themselves in order to learn and grow. Each and every child learns in their own ways and she strives to differentiate her teaching to fit the needs of all. The natural world is full of endless discovery and she works to instill this love into each child. In her free time she works on art, coaches diving, rollerblades, rock climbs, and hikes around New England with her partner
