1st Grade Team

Welcome back Wildcats! I am very excited about teaching 1st grade at McKeel Academy Central  this year.  This is my 22nd year  in the education system.  I graduated from The University of Toledo in 1999 with my degree in Speech/Language Therapy.  Over the years I've had many amazing experiences teaching ages from 3-11.  Teaching is my passion.  My main goal is to grant every student success on their own educational path! Teaching students to read and watching them grow as readers is very exciting and rewarding to me. This year I plan to make our learning environment fun, engaging and student centered. I can't wait to start this year with your child!  I am excited about the memories and learning we will be endeavoring throughout the school year.
