Teacher Spotlight

Miss Hoover

Kindergarten Team

Welcome! This is my ninth year teaching kindergarten and I've been fortunate enough to be with South McKeel since our first year. I truly love teaching kindergarten and I am very thankful to be a part of the McKeel family.   The classroom is my home away from home. I provide a structured environment where my students feel safe and loved.  Our day is full of cooperative learning activities that keep my students motivated and engaged in their learning. The best part of teaching kindergarten is how far the students come in a year's time. Each school year is truly very rewarding and I am so lucky to be doing what I love!
