Welcome back Wildcats! I am so glad we will all be back on campus this school year.  

This year begins my 9th year at McKeel and 22nd year teaching.  I earned my Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Business Management from Webber International University in 1997. I am certified to teach Business Education, Reading and Grades 6-9 English. 

Over the span of my career, I have taught Reading, English and Graphic Arts.  At McKeel, I am a part of the Graphic Arts program and serve as the Lead Teacher in the Digital Imagery Academy.  The students in this academy learn how to create many different kinds of media using Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, After Effects and HJeDesign.  Some students will use their skills and knowledge to create the school's yearbook.

A very simple supply list is needed for all of my classes, as most of what we do is on the computer.  

Supply List for all classes

Tissues (the ones from the office can be a little rough on noses)
