Mrs. Oxford, Club Sponsor

I am proud to be starting my 14th year of teaching and 5th year at McKeel Academy this year.  I have taught middle school science my entire career and will be teaching 7th grade science this year.  I am a graduate of Florida Southern College where I earned my degree in Biology.  My husband, Derek, and I have been married for 12 years and have two children, Cullen, 8, and Kinsley, 6.  We also have two dogs Daisy and Lily.  I am looking forward to an awesome school year!
