Degrees and Certifications:
I am Kelsey Carlson. I was born and raised in Gulfport, MS, and I am a graduate of Gulfport schools. I began my college journey studying physics at Mississippi State University and later obtained my bachelor's in Psychology from The University of Southern Mississippi. Before pursuing a career in teaching, I was an independent insurance agent. I began my teaching career at Gulfport High in 2016 where I taught Algebra I and Statistics. Fate has finally landed me at BVE where I am LOVING every second of coaching PE alongside my mom, Coach Cook.
I just celebrated 6 years of marriage with my husband, Cory Carlson, who is also an educator and coach in the Gulfport School District. Together we have two beautiful children, Cook Gabriel (3) and Cole Grace (2), and one Australian Shepherd pup named Kenzie.
