3rd Grade Team

Hello Wildcats!  I'm so excited to be a part of the amazing 3rd grade team at South Mckeel.  I graduated from Georgia Southern University with a BS in Elementary Education.  I taught 3rd grade in Hillsborough County for eight years before starting my family.  I was blessed to be able to stay home while my boys were young.  I started subbing at SMA and soon realized I wanted to be back in the classroom full time.  I love teaching and look forward to coming to work everyday.  I am starting my 7th year at SMA.  I have a son who is a senior at Harrison School for the Arts and one in 10th grade at MAT.   I look forward to an exciting year of learning and growth with a great group of students.
