Nick and Kelli

Our Letter

We are so absolutely honored that you’ve taken the time to look at our profile.

We are Kelli and Nick, both high school teachers (Kelli works part time). We are truly so thrilled to share our lives with you.

We live and work in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago in one of the best school districts in the state.

We have two children who CANNOT wait to be big siblings, and a dog (2 year old that we adopted at 8 weeks), who cannot wait to have some more action around the house. We have multiple adopted family members and their excitement for this journey is amazing!

We live each day for what it is, celebrate every little triumph, and laugh as often as we can.
We are constantly humbled (and educated!) by our students, and have an amazing support system from every walk of life through our close family, friends, students, and colleagues.

We are thankful to be able to share with you. You are brave, smart and our hearts are with you on your journey.

We are an open book- please ask us anything!
