1st Grade Team
Welcome to First Grade! This is my eleventh year teaching at McKeel Academy Central, and it is my fifteenth year being part of the McKeel family. I attended Florida Southern College and earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education K-6.
This will be my ninth year teaching First Grade. I have taught Second Grade and Kindergarten as well. 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, while at the same time having fun doing so in a safe environment. I believe if we work together we can be the BEST! I look forward to many more years of teaching the brilliant students at McKeel Academy Central.
