Mrs. McKinney


I began my career teaching 4th grade at Las Brisas Elementary School, where I stayed for two years. I then decided to be a part of opening a brand new school and moved up to 6th grade at Copper Creek Elementary School.  I loved teaching and working with middle level students and taught 6th grade for three years. I then made the move to a middle school where I am beginning my 20th year at Desert Sky and 26th year of teaching. I always knew I wanted to teach, but once I was out in the teaching world I discovered how much I loved to teach math!

I graduated from ASU in 1994 with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. 

    Middle Grades Math 7-8
    Middle School Endorsed (grades 5-9)

    SEI Certified (Structured English Immersion)

    Highly Qualified as a math teacher


Personal Information

My husband and I enjoy many things outside of school. We love to travel and do so whenever we have the chance.  We also love spending time  enjoying the outdoors, camping, riding quads, and going to the beach.  We also love going to the movies.  I have 2 boys, 11 years old and 15 years old. We spend a lot of time watching my youngest play basketball and football and my oldest is a competitive swimmer.


I enjoy teaching and I am looking forward to working with you to make this school year a successful one.
