• Administration Team


    We are excited to serve the KME Colt Community as the  KME Admin Team. Each year brings the opportunity to make a broader impact on the lives of our Colts. “We Are Family."

    We Are Kelly Mill
    Colts Who Care
    Difference Makers
    World Changers
    Wisdom Seekers
    As such, we intentionally approach each school year questioning how to make this year better than the last. We know that amazing things can only happen for our KME Community when we all partner together in the best interests of the children.

    Thank you for being part of the KME Family. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time you need to do so.

    rm McAllister, Ron Principal
    Students often ask, "What is it like to be the principal?" I honestly tell them that it is the best job because I get to talk with kids of all ages and learn from them.
    It is my goal to be part of the students' journey to success. Please let me know if I can ever be of assistance to you.
    Go Colts!!!

    I have had the pleasure of being a member of the Colt Family since Kelly Mill's doors opened in 2012.  As a Forsyth County native and FCSS graduate, it is an honor to watch our school and system continue to excel! 

    I taught 3rd grade from 2001-2012,  5th grade from 2012-2015, and have been a part of the KME Administrative Team since 2015. 

    I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education, Master's Degree in Technology in Education, and a Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a Leadership Add-On.

    My husband, Chuck, and I are blessed with two wonderful children. Our son, Charlie, is an 8th grader at OMS, and our daughter, Molly, is a 3rd grader at KME.

    I look forward to another fantastic year with the KME Family! If there is anything I can do to support you, please don't hesitate to reach out via phone or email anytime. It's a Great Day to be a Colt!
