5th Grade Team

Welcome to McKeel Academy Central and to 5th Grade Math! This is my 15th year teaching and my seventh 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!
