Learn Something About Me

Hello Wildcats!

This is my fist year as Middle School Counselor at McKeel Academy and I am so excited to be back!  I started my educational career at this campus 16 years ago.  Since that time, I have worn many hats at the Schools of McKeel Academy.  I taught 8th grade Integrated Research, MS and HS Chorus, Elementary Music at MAC, and 7th Grade Language Arts and Leadership at SMA. I am a Wildcat through and through!  I earned my degree at Southeastern University, but my learning and education didn't stop there.  I learn new things every single day.  I am a lifelong learner and I hope to pass along my love for learning to all of you!  

If you need to set up an appointment with me, please email or call 499-2818 ext. 226.

Have a great year!!
