2nd Grade Team

Welcome to 2nd grade!!

I am originally from Naples, FL. After graduating from Florida Southern College with my BS in Elementary Education, I began teaching at what is now called McKeel Academy Central. South McKeel opened it's doors in 2006, and I have had the absolute pleasure of being here since it's opening! I taught 4th grade for 11 years. This will be my 8th year teaching 2nd grade and I am so excited to continue this adventure! I am looking forward to a great year of growth and learning for each of my students! Together, we are going to have an extraordinary year!
