My name is Mrs. Kelly Edwards. I was born and raised in Rialto, and graduated from Eisenhower High School. I also attended Morgan Elementary and Frisbie Junior High Schools. I loved my time at Eisenhower and I made sure I was involved with the campus. I was a member of the Pep Squad, Key Club, Spanish Club, Sobobans and Azurattes. Academics were also a very important part of my life. I realized at an early age that education was vital to my future success in life. I did not start out to be a high school counselor; I originally majored in Interior Design at San Bernardino Valley College. I paid for college by working at a local gym, running the aerobic program, setting up personal fitness programs and eventually working my way into management. My experience at the gym enforced my love for fitness which led me to change my major to Industrial Fitness and transferred to Cal Poly Pomona. While I was there I met several professors that encouraged me to move towards education and I graduated with a BS degree in Physical Education with a minor in Adopted Physical Education. I have always had a passion for special populations and was blessed to find a career that combined my love for both physical education and special needs students. Shortly after graduation I began substitute teaching at Eisenhower High School and saw the need that many students had on a personal/guidance level and decided to move into the counseling field. I remember vividly being in high school and not going to see my counselor because I use to think you only saw a counselor if you were in discipline trouble. I missed out on a lot of good information so I encourage all students to come in even you think we are busy or you cant wait that day to be seen just make an appointment and well help however we can. I take a lot of pride in Eisenhower and I want to see all our students reach for their goals what ever they maybe. If your students are not sure what they want to do, that fine too come on in and let’s talk about it. If a students just needs to talk in general were here for that to.
I have only recently moved from the city of Rialto. My family and I now live in Yucaipa were my daughter attends middle school and is active in a local karate program. I still support a healthy life style but have been finding it a bit of a challenge getting to the gym on a regular basis lately. If I find myself with some free time I love to read and spend time with family and friends doing the simple things like sharing a movie having a barbeque or playing cards. Life’s short, stay positive, focused and honest with yourself, the rest will come. Remember ATTITUDE is the key ingredient to success. “GO EAGLES”
