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!
