Mrs. Sandy McKinzie

Hi, I teach Literacy and Social Studies to mine and Mrs. Andreasen's home room. I received a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Northeastern State University.   It still touches my heart to see a child's face light up with the understanding of a new concept or the joy of reading a book or a passage.  I am on my 30th (YES, 30th) year of teaching in Arkansas.  I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 5th graders, but 5th grade is my favorite.  I love my 5th graders.

My husband of 37 years, and I have three grown sons, who all graduated from Gravette Schools.  My oldest & youngest live in Rogers, but my middle son is just moving to Gravette. (YEAH!!) That means my three grands are close by, which makes me a busy, but happy Nana.  I love to read, walk, and spend time in my flower beds.  We recently bought a home that actually has a LEVEL yard with lots of sunshine, so you can find me amongst the bees & butterflies during the summer.  I dearly love my small hometown of Gravette, and I love my job!!
