Biography

My name is Mrs. Shelly, and I am new to McKee Head Start. I have an Associates degree in Cross Cultural Studies and I am eager to be a part of the McKee team. One of my goals is to encourage and uplift my classroom teacher, Mrs. Nancy, equipping each other with the focus of educating our students alongside a significant relationship. Outside of school, I am very busy with the activities surrounding my family. I have a loving husband and three kids. We love spending time together, and we are very active in our church. I do enjoy spending time with friends, and scrapbooking. Life is full of adventures, and together we can grow and achieve life's journey.
