Mrs. McKelvey

Hi everyone!  I'm excited to be teaching strings at Paxtonia Elementary this year!  2023-2024 marked my 25th year teaching instrumental music for Central Dauphin!  I also currently work at Paxtang and Rutherford Elementary Schools.

My main instrument is tuba and I've enjoyed playing in many groups - concert bands, orchestras, big bands, and brass quintets, to name a few.  Some highlights of my performance career have been playing in the National Wind Ensemble in Carnegie Hall in NYC and playing the National Anthem twice for Phillies games.

I live in Palmyra with my husband and 2 sons.  We're very active as a family in scouting and martial arts.

I'm looking forward to a great year here at Paxtonia!
