Ms. Cullins, Administrator

Happy New Year and welcome to my teacher web page! My name is Ms. Terri Cullins and I am starting my 18th year at McKeel Academy! I graduated from USF with a BA degree in Mass Communications/Public Relations and I have my MBA in Business Intelligence from Baker College - Center for Graduate Studies. I am highly certified by the Fla. Dept. of Education to teach Business Education 6th-12th grades and Social Studies 5th-9th grades. 


Before becoming a Teacher, I worked for Publix Super Markets for 20 years in the stores & in Education & Training Development, which allows me to bring real-world business experience to all of my courses. My classroom is an open and safe learning environment where students will participate in projects for the McKeel Marketing Group.  This student-run enterprise help promote the McKeel Academy of Technology brand and increase brand equity for all our Teams and Clubs.  I expect everyone to be treated respectfully and bring creative ideas to class.  I use Quizlet, Kahoot and other assessment methods to ensure course standards are being mastered.  

This year I am teaching the 8th grade course: Marketing Occupations, Marketing Essentials, Marketing Applications and Marketing Management.  I am the Adviser for McKeel's FBLA - Future Business Leaders of America! Join this International Business Club and make a difference at our school and in our community!  I am also a Polk State College Adjunct Professor.
