4th Grade Team
This is my second year teaching at McKeel Academy Central. I graduated from Southeastern University with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I am certified in elementary education, and I am reading and ESOL endorsed. I have a passion for reading, learning, and teaching. I hope to instill in your child a love for learning and a joy to come to school each day. Feel free to contact me anytime.
