Ms. Kelsie Canty
Welcome to Ms. Canty's English class!
Ms. Canty grew up in West Philadelphia (born and raised). In 2013, she began her work in the field of education as a Teacher's Assistant with City Year, where she assisted with 7th grade classes. She received her Bachelor of Arts in English from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she also became a Finer Woman of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Ms. Canty relocated to New Orleans, Louisiana by way of Teach For America during the summer of 2018.
At Chalmette High, she teaches English I and coaches the Class C Step Team. As the daughter of a retired teacher's assistant and gym teacher, education has always been a priority in her life. This has always been the life path that she has been working for. Her dream is to change the world and the easiest way to do that is help cultivate the growth of other world changers.
Outside of teaching, Ms. Canty loves food tasting and following-up her ameteur movie critiques with an episode of CinemaSins.
