• Welcome to Joy
    Physical Education!!!
  • Meet The Teacher

    My name is Kelly Craig and I am the physical education teacher here at Joy Elementary School. I was born and raised here in Michigan City. I graduated from Marquette High School in 2001. After graduation, I went onto Ball State University, where I received a bachelors degree in K-12 Physical Education and a minor in K-12 Adapted Physical Education.

    After college I moved to Chicago and started my teaching career teaching 1st through 8th grade physical education for the Chicago Public Schools. I taught in Chicago for five years and then moved back to Indiana the summer of 2011 when I married my husband Joe. I spent the next school year working as a teacher's aide for the School City of Mishawaka's preschool program while continuing to search for a physical education position.   I started teaching for Michigan City Area Schools in the fall of 2012 and have worked in multiple buildings over the last three year at the elementary level.  I am so happy to be back in my home town teaching physical.   While teaching in Michigan City, I have expanded my family and welcomed my son William in October of 2013 and my daughters Olivia in April of 2015 and Evelyn in March of 2018.
    I love being a physical education teacher and look forward to working with you and your children here at Joy Elementary School!
