Kelly Gaier Evans aims to open doors and opportunities for students across the country. As a STEM Relationship Manager, she supports teachers across multiple STEM networks to prepare students for their pursuits after high school. Kelly spearheads Battelle Education’s College Ready Literacy, Math, and Computer Science programs, offering a variety of classroom-ready resources for teaching across disciplines.  

Kelly holds a BA from Capital University in Political Science and International Studies. Recently, she worked with the Literacy Design Collaborative to create science-centered teaching modules that emphasize the strong communication skills that professional Battelle scientists use every day. She has organized trainings nationally, impacting thousands of teachers and students along the way.  

Kelly taught through Teach for America, so nothing beats hearing from former students about their career plans and successes. One memorable former student is now one year away from completing her biotechnology degree. She is most proud of these student outcomes, and hopes to reach more students by supporting teachers across the country.  

Kelly unapologetically dominates family games of Settlers of Catan. She is also on her way towards visiting all of the national parks by foot or by kayak. She loves reading, crafting, and listening to the Delta blues.
