Mrs. Kelly Savage, M.Ed.
Hello, Furr Families! My name is Kelly Savage and I am so excited to serve the students, families, and community of Furr Elementary and Prosper ISD.
I was born and raised in Tucson, AZ, but moved to Texas as soon as I could 😊 I have been married to my “high school sweetheart” for over 23 years, and we have six children (3 boys and 3 girls). Three of our children attend schools in Prosper ISD and are very active in sports and activities that they love. We have a sixth and eighth grader at Hays Middle School, a senior at Rock Hill High School, a freshman at University of Arlington, a sophomore at Daytona State College, and a senior at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
As an aspiring educational leader, I am working towards a second Masters degree in Educational Leadership to obtain my Principal Certification. I have taught in Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD for the past six years, and had the honor of teaching fourth, fifth, and first grade. In 2019, I was honored as the Teacher of the Year for Saginaw Elementary School as well as the Elementary Teacher of the Year for the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD. I have also served as a campus Learning Coach and completed two years of the Aspiring Leadership Institute through EMSISD.
I stay pretty busy with all the family activities, but in my spare time (if I have any) I love to watch sports (mostly baseball), sew, sing (at least I try to), spend time with family and friends, watch classic movies (“classic,” meaning black and white), take naps, and play board games.
I have a genuine love for learning and believe that we all have the ability to achieve greatness. Each of us has strengths and experiences that we can share with each other to create a learning environment that fosters an appreciation and love for learning!
“Continuous effort no strength or intelligence is the key to unlocking our potential.” ~Winston Churchill
