Welcome to Mrs. McNeel's Class! I am looking forward to the new school year and getting to know my new students.
Parents--before I say anything else, please know that I will take excellent care of your child, I am here for all of you, and I will be available with any questions or concerns you may have. Your child is my #1 priority and I will never give up on them. I want to help them learn as much as I can squeeze into their little brains before the end of the year! My conference time this year is from 11:35-12:30.
Teaching has always been my passion. I grew up in a family of teachers. I honestly had no choice but to become one. ;) I graduated from SHSU in 2010 with my Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I taught 6th grade my first year and 3rd grade every year after. I actually had the opportunity to counsel at HES the last half of the year, but missed the classroom so much I decided to return. There is something about teaching students, building relationships with the student and their families, and seeing their academic growth that you just can't get anywhere besides the classroom.
I have been married for 5 years to Roger McNeel, which teaches 5th grade Math at HIS. We just had our first baby, Cameron Dale McNeel. He is four months old and the absolute joy of our lives. I love coffee and sweets. I have a dog named Domino (that actually acts like a baby). Your child will learn a TON about me this year through our writing. Be prepared to hear some interesting stories!
I am looking forward to a GREAT year!
