• StaffMeet Ms. McKinley

    The 2019-2020 school year marks my 18th 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 graduated from ASU in 2002 with a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. My teaching career began in the Tempe School District teaching Kindergarten for 3 years and First Grade for 2 years. While in Tempe, I continued at ASU graduating in 2005 with a Masters degree in Curriculum & Instruction with an emphasis in teaching children who speak English as a second language. In 2007, I became a Goodman Gator and began teaching Kindergarten. I taught Kindergraten at Goodman for 10 years and am now starting my 3rd year in Fourth Grade. I have completed Spalding I and II and have a second masters from NAU in School Administration. I look forward to working with you and your child and making it a year to remember.

    I currently live in Chandler and love spending time with my family and my adorable nieces (Lily and Ari). I keep busy by spending time with friends and family, dining out, seeing movies, practicing yoga and relaxing by the pool. I also have two kitties, Elliot and Tilla. 

    I am looking forward to another amazing year turning minds into life long learners. 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.
