About Mrs. Baum

Hello and Welcome to 5th grade!
My name is Kelly Baum, and I teach Math, Science, and Social Studies. Mrs. Wiley and I are teaching partners this year; she teaches Reading, Writing, and Word Work. I am extremely excited to start this new journey at Elmwood Academy!!  It is going to be an incredible year! This will be my 12th year at MASD! Time sure flies when you're having fun! I began my career in 3rd grade and have spent the last 9 years teaching 5th graders! I absolutely love this age group and know it so well! We have a fantastic time together; learn a lot, and strive to cultivate the sheer love of life long learning! 
Personally, I have been married 28 years to my wonderful husband, Roy. We have 3 children; Ben 27, Sarah 25, and Sam 22. Ben lives in Pittsburgh, Sarah in Camp Hill, and Sam has a year left of college. And boy do we have an exciting year ahead; Sarah will be getting married on May 4th and Sam will be graduating college one week later, on May 11th!! If Ben has any exciting news to share (maybe an engagementheart eye smiley), I hope he steers clear of May! winky face
If there is ever anything you need, please email me at or call the school to speak to me directly. It's going to be a wonderful year together! I cannot wait to meet you and your child!
