Hello Wildcats! Welcome to 8th grade! This year is my 2nd year teaching at McKeel and my 22nd year teaching in Polk County. I am a Lakeland native and graduated from Florida Southern College in 1999 with my bachelors degree PreK/Primary/Elementary Education. In 2016, I received my state certification for teaching Middle School Math grades 5-9. For the past 21 years, I have been honored to teach students from 1st to 8th grade. I have been married for 21 years and have both a daughter and son attending Florida Gulf Coast University. This year is going to be a FABULOUS year in PreAlgebra and Algebra 1. I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know all of you.
