3rd Grade Team
Hello Wildcats! I am excited to be a part of the McKeel family for a 5th year. This is my 16th year teaching 3rd grade. I spent the first 11 years teaching at Sikes Elementary, then came to McKeel to continue my teaching career. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Development Pre-K-3rd grade at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. I then moved to Florida to pursue my teaching career. Also, I have my Master's Degree in K-12 Educational Leadership from the University of South Florida. I absolutely love teaching and am focused in making learning fun while creating a hands-on learning environment in the classroom.
