6th Grade Team
Welcome to Sixth Grade! This is my thirteenth year teaching at McKeel Academy Central, and it is my sixteenth year being part of the McKeel family. I attended Florida Southern College and earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education K-6.
I am thrilled to be teaching sixth grade this year! I have taught first grade for ten years. In addition, I have taught second grade and Kindergarten. I look forward to getting to know each of you and your children this year. To make this a successful year, we will become a partnership in working together to give your child the best education. My goal for this year is for each of your children to have a great year of learning and growth. I believe if we work together we can be the BEST!
