Kelly Fujihira - Art

Hi Colts! My name is Kelly Fujihira and I am your art teacher. I am currently starting my 11th year as an art teacher and my 5th year as a Kelly Mill Colt. I graduated from The University of North Georgia in 2004 with a Degree in Studio Art and went on to get my teacher certification afterwards. I have worked as an Instructional Aide in Pre-K and Kindergarten before moving into the roll of art teacher. When I am not teaching, I enjoy building furniture or running around with my kids and family. I am looking forward to seeing everyone this year.

Pam Fulkerson - Music

Hi Colts! I am Pam Fulkerson, the music teacher at Kelly Mill Elementary. I started playing the violin when I was nine years old, and fell in love with practicing, performing, and being a part of musical ensembles. I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor's of Music degree in violin performance. After that, my path changed a bit, and I went back to school to become an elementary classroom teacher. I have been at Kelly Mill since it opened, teaching 2nd and 4th grades for the first six years. After that I was given the opportunity to reunite with my musical background, and am so grateful to have been given the opportunity to share my love of music with children. I am passionate about ALL music, and my goal is to inspire students to play, perform, enjoy, and pursue music while they are here, and after they leave Kelly Mill.

Ariel Tithof - Drama

Hi! My name is Ariel Tithof and this is my seventh year teaching Drama at Kelly Mill. I received my BA in Theatre from Brenau University and my MEd in Theatre Education from Columbus State University. I also studied Shakespeare and English Literature at Cambridge University in England. I have over 12 years of acting, dance, and musical theatre experience, as well as a background in playwriting and puppetry. I previously worked as a teaching artist with DreamBox Theatre and the Alliance Theatre. I come from a long line of educators and never thought I would end up in the classroom, but it’s the most amazing place to be! My husband and I have been married for seven years. We have a daughter, are expecting our second child, and have three cats. I enjoy reading, hiking, traveling, and an occasional trip to Disney World. My ‘why’ for teaching is simple: to help my students become the best humans they can be through meaningful learning experiences and by building long-lasting relationships. I’m so blessed to teach what I am passionate about and be able to foster a love of the arts in my students every day!

Daniel Warner - PE

My name is Daniel Warner. I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a degree in Health and Physical Education in 2012. That fall I was hired as the PE para and 2 years later became the lead PE teacher. I have been at Kelly Mill since opening in 2012. I am passionate about teaching students new ways to play and be active that they can use outside of school in addition to recess and PE times. I am a CrossFit enthusiast, a 1st degree blackbelt in Karate and a 3rd degree blackbelt in Taekwondo. I love sharing what I enjoy with students and so aspects of these hobbies will be integrated into PE classes. Outside of fitness I like to draw, work on cars, and ride my motorcycle. I'm so excited to begin another great year at Kelly Mill!
