Hello wildcats! I'm excited to be starting my seventh year with SMA as the middle school academic paraprofessional. Iâ€™m a Georgia girl, born and raised in the suburbs of Atlanta. I graduated from Emory University with my degree in Early Childhood Education. My husband and I moved to Lakeland in 2006 and, along with our two children, love calling Florida our home. Iâ€™m happy to be a part of the McKeel family and look forward to working with the middle school teachers and students this year!
