1st Grade Team
Welcome to First Grade!
I am so excited for this school year! This is my third 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 learning and teaching. I hope to instill in your child a love for learning and a joy to come to school each day. This year my goal is to enrich your child with hands-on, engaging, and differentiated learning experiences to meet your child's needs and help your child reach his or her full potential. In my classroom, learning will be a positive, challenging, exciting, and fun journey throughout the year. By partnering with you, I am confident your child grow this school year. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns throughout the year.
