Our 2nd grade teacher is Mrs. McKinney

About Mrs. McKinney

Hello! My name is Jordan McKinney, and I grew up right here on the water in Gulf Breeze. When I was in first grade I decided that I wanted to be a teacher, and the dream stuck. I went to Samford University in Birmingham and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Special Education.

This area was always near and dear to my heart so I happily returned after college. This will be my third year of teaching. I previously taught math intervention and fourth grade. My days are spent reading, going to the beach, and spending time with my husband and our two kittens and dog. I love to serve at my local church, running races, and being heavily involved in my community.

As a teacher, I love nothing more than helping my students reach their goals. I enjoy teaching in small groups with hands on learning. In my classroom we do a lot of projects, and apply a lot of our curriculum to the real world. I was involved in musical theatre for many years, and that comes out in the classroom in plays and music. I have always wanted to be a Sandpiper, and I cannot wait to begin my year in the school and grade of my dreams.
