Mrs. O'Steen

Kindergarten Team

Hello!  My name is Mrs. O'steen, and I am very happy to be a part of South McKeel Academy!  I graduated from Florida Southern College with a degree in Prekindergarten/Primary and Elementary Education.   In 2008, I earned my National Board Teaching Certification and in January of 2018, I completed the comprehensive training for Orton-Gillingham, a multi-sensory approach to teaching reading.  This is my sixteenth year teaching kindergarten, and I love it!  I have a strong passion for teaching young children.  I find it a joy to help little ones grow academically and socially through their first years of school. 

Take-Home Bags 

When your child brings home a Take-Home Bag, here are a few reminders: 1. You do not need to complete every activity in the bag.  2. If it was sent home on a busy night, just let me know in the agenda that you need it for an extra night.  3. Please return the bag after one OR two nights at home.  4. Use the activities as an assessment to see where your child excels/struggles.  5. HAVE FUN!  


 Please follow the schedule on our website for your child's day to have a visitor. 

Snacks and Water Bottles 

Don't forget to send your child with a snack (packed separately from the lunchbox) and a water bottle to school each day.
