• Meet Ms. McKinley

    The 2020-2021 school year marks my 19th year of teaching. It's hard to believe that so much time has gone by and I still love coming to work everyday! Time sure flies when you are having fun! 

    As a young child, I lived in Albuquerque, Indianapolis, Detroit and Virginia Beach, VA finally landing in Scottsdale, Arizona in 1988. I am the oldest of 3. My brother and his famiy live in Chandler which makes it very convenient for me to spend lots of time with them. My sister is a nurse in Santa Fe and visting her beautiful town in always a treat.  


    I currently live in Gilbert with my two kitties, Elliot and Tilla. I enjoy spending time with my family and my adorable nieces (Lily and Ari). I keep busy by being around those I love, dining out (sushi is my favorite), seeing movies (always with a Diet Coke in hand), practicing yoga, crafting and relaxing by the pool. Being a huge animal lover I adore my extended family of pups...Hazel, Kanai, Sophie and Louis. Last summer I had the prividege of fostering 3 kittens and found it such a rewarding experience. 

    I am looking forward to another amazing year turning minds into life long learners and getting to know you and your family better. Feel free to email me (mckinley.amy@cusd80.com) or call anytime (480-812-6945) for information regarding your child and Fourth Grade at CTA Goodman.
