Welcome Kindergarten Wildcats!
I am SO excited for this school year! This will be my nineteenth year of teaching and my third year as part of the fabulous kindergarten team at McKeel Academy Central. Prior to my time at McKeel, I taught for sixteen years at Caldwell Elementary in Auburndale. I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Elementary Education at the University of Connecticut...GO HUSKIES! I am certified to teach grades K-6 and I also have my ESOL and Reading K-12 endorsements. I have teaching experience in both kindergarten and first grade but my heart has always belonged to kindergarten. I hope to make your child's first year of school memorable and to instill in them a love of learning that they will hold on to throughout their educational journey. I am looking forward to an amazing school year!!!
