1st Grade Team

Welcome to Kindergarten!  This is my ninth year teaching at McKeel Academy Central, but it is my thirteenth year being part of the McKeel family. I attended Florida Southern College and earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. 

This is my first year teaching Kindergarten and I am immensely excited about it!  I look forward to getting to know each of you and your children this year.  To make this a successful year, we will become a partnership in working together to give your child the best education.  My goal for this year is for each of your children to have a great year of learning and growth, while at the same time having fun doing so in a safe environment. I believe if we work together we can be the BEST!  I look forward to many more years of teaching the brilliant students at McKeel Academy Central.
