School Counselors

Hello Wildcats!

I am so happy to be back as School Counselor for 7th and 8th grade!  This year, I will be working with students whose last names begin with the letters A-K.  I started my educational career at this campus 18 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. We are also a Wildcat Family!  My husband works at MAC and both of our daughters are graduates of MAT.  I am a Wildcat through and through!  I earned my Bachelor of Science and my Masters in Educational Leadership 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 emilybackes@mckeelschools.com or call 499-2818 ext. 226.

Have a great year!!
