Dr. Kelly Feille is an associate professor of science education in the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education at the University of Oklahoma and is the Jane and John Kenney Endowed Education Faculty Fellow. Dr. Feille has worked in public education teaching science in grades Pre-K through sixth. At the University of Oklahoma, Dr. Feille continues her passion for science education through her work with pre-service elementary teachers and graduate students in science education.
She seeks to ensure that her students leave the University of Oklahoma with the confidence and tools to teach science in ways that engage students to ask important questions, think critically, and collect, evaluate, and argue from evidence. Her research focuses on the development of elementary science teachers and in particular how to encourage the development of schoolyard pedagogy, which takes advantage of the learning moments in and out of the traditional classroom.
