3rd Grade Team

Hello Families!  I am quite excited about this year’s adventure. Getting to know students and their families each year brings a lot of joy to my heart.  I love to see a child’s face light up when they grasp a new concept, grow and learn. Something we learned this year is IDKSAE.  Having children recognize that they “do know something about everything,” allows them to realize there is always a place to begin as we take what we know, expand our knowledge and “grow our brains”.  Third grade is sure to be full of things your children have been exposed to previously as we think a little deeper and add some really cool, new items to their educational brain bank!

Allow me to share a bit of history regarding my educational background and certifications.  I graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  This certified me to teach Pre-K through Third Grade.  I later added Elementary Education expanding my certification through Sixth Grade.  Additionally, I have my ESOL endorsement.  I began my teaching career in Bradenton, FL teaching Pre-K with Varying Exceptionalities and Kindergarten both at Magnet and Private Schools.  Upon moving to Lakeland, I substituted within the Schools of McKeel Academy.  I was later blessed to teach Second Grade at McKeel Academy Central.  A few years later, I  transferred to South McKeel Academy and taught First Grade.  After my third child, I again chose to substitute throughout the Schools of McKeel.  

While at home I enjoy time with my husband and three children.  My husband and I are thankful for two amazing boys and our youngest daughter.  All began their educational journeys at McKeel.  Our oldest boy is a Senior, while the other is a Freshman and last but not least, our daughter, is a Second Grader at South McKeel Academy. Although we have a bit of Florida Gator and South Florida Bull in us, you can see we are all truly McKeel Wildcats at heart.  Go Wildcats!
