6th Grade Team
I am thrilled to be joining the McKeel Schools family. This will be my 13th year of teaching. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) and my Masters in Educational Leadership from West Florida University. I have taught third, fourth and fifth grade; but my heart is in fourth! I love teaching and know it is my true passion in life.
In my spare time, I love being with my husband and our three amazing kids, Keira (4th), Diem (2nd) and Callen (1st). We love hanging out, water sports, watching movies, laughing and being with friends!
My Teaching Philosophy
I am a teacher and so much more! I am a 'difference maker;' I strive to give my students a positive outlook and encouragement. My beliefs on teaching are short and simple- Everyone Can. I believe that if someone is willing to do something or learn or grow then everyone can accomplish, everyone can succeed, everyone can grow. I am a teacher and so much more! I am a 'difference maker;' I strive to give my students a positive outlook and encouragement. It is my mission to instill in my students the belief that they too can do anything they set their mind to, and with my help I hope to guide them along that path.
