5th Grade Team

Welcome to McKeel Academy Central and to 5th Grade Math! This is my 16th year teaching and my eighth year at MAC. I love teaching and have a passion for what I do and the children that I teach. I have lived in Lakeland for most of my life. I graduated from the University of South Florida and am certified to teach grades K-6 and Mathematics 6-12. I also have my ESOL endorsement and Reading Endorsement. I am looking forward to an exciting and successful school year!

Happy Summer Break!

Sign up for 5th grade REMIND messages!! 

We will use Remind as a source of communication this year.  5th grade teachers will send reminders via text to all 5th grade students and parents that sign up. You may sign up as many phone numbers as you would like.  It is beneficial if you sign up both parents as well as the student, if they have a cell phone.   Send a text to the number below and include the message listed below to sign up!
