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 20 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!  

I am in the House of Eheys and am excited to see all of the awesome things that will happen with our House system this year!  

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!!
