Mrs. Sonja McKelvy

Hi! My name is Sonja McKelvy, and I am one of the gifted specialists for Hartselle Intermediate school. This year I will be teaching 5th grade gifted science and 6th grade math.  I am married to Tim, who is a REAL rocket scientist!!  We are blessed with 3 children: Jamie, Rachel, and David. Jamie lives and works in Pasadena,CA, Rachel is a student at Birmingham Southern College double majoring in chemistry and religion, 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!!
