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 sixth year at McKeel Academy Central although it is my 20th year in art education. In 2014, I was awarded Teacher of the Year at Kingsford Elementary. I was elected the honor of being a presenter Florida Art Educator conference in 2022 and 2023. I have a lifelong love for the arts and I am excited to ignite the artist in your child!
