1st Grade Team
Welcome to First Grade!
I am so excited for this school year! This is my fourth year teaching at McKeel Academy Central. I graduated from Southeastern University with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education. I am certified in elementary education, and I am reading and ESOL endorsed. I have a passion for learning and teaching. This year my goal is to enrich your child with engaging and differentiated learning experiences to meet your child's needs and help your child reach his or her full potential. In my classroom, learning will be a positive, challenging, exciting, and fun journey throughout the year. By partnering with you, I am confident your child grow this school year. I hope to instill a love of learning in your child, and I look forward to working together this year! Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns throughout the year.
