1st Grade Team
Welcome to First Grade! This is my tenth year teaching at McKeel Academy Central, but it is my fourteenth year being part of the McKeel family. I attended Florida Southern College and earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education K-6.
This is my eighth year teaching First Grade. 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.
Students should read each night for 20 minutes. Please list the book that was read on the reading log that is in your child's teal Monday folder or in your child's agenda.
Students are welcome to go on to Zearn, IXL or Xtra Math for math practice.
