Hello Wildcats! I'm excited for the upcoming school year McKeel Academy Central! I have my bachelor's degree in Art education from the University of South Florida. This is my fourth year at McKeel Academy Central although it is my 19th year in art education. In 2014, I was awarded Teacher of the Year at Kingsford Elementary. I was also a presenter at Florida Art Educator Association conference in Naples in 2015. I have a lifelong love for the arts and I am excited to ignite the artist in your child!
