Welcome Kindergarten Wildcats!
I am SO excited to be joining the McKeel family this year! While this will be my first year at McKeel Academy Central, it will be my seventeenth year of teaching. I taught all sixteen of my previous 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!!!
