Mrs. Sonja McKelvy

Hi! My name is Sonja McKelvy, and I am the gifted specialist for F.E. Burleson Elementary school. I am married to Tim, who is a REAL rocket scientist!!  We are blessed with 3 children: Jamie, Rachel, and David.  Jamie is a graduate student at University of Alabama studying aerospace engineering, Rachel is a student at Birmingham Southern College majoring in Chemistry, and David is a student at HHS and a tuba player in the HHS band.  I am very active in my church, band boosters, and community theater.  My hobbies include reading, singing, dancing, acting, crocheting, solving puzzles, and Zentangling.  I am also blessed to have friends all over the world thanks to the year my family spent living in Boston, MA and participating in the MIT Sloan Fellows program. 


I am looking forward to a fabulous year!! For more information about my class and the things we do, check out my website:
