My name is Kaela McGirt and I will be your Fourth Grade designated OVAL (online) teacher this year. As your online instructor my goal is to be helpful as we embark on the journey of distance learning together, and create a welcoming and safe online environment for my leopards to learn in this year.
I am new to Gainesville but not new to the craft of teaching. For the past five years I taught 2nd grade and 5th grade in Fort Worth Independent School District. My parents and grandparents have lived in Valley View for a long time and we were so happy to relocate to this area this year. My husband Josh and I have one son, Riley, who keeps us on our toes! We love living on the land in this wonderful part of Texas and we enjoy taking care of our family's chickens, donkeys, and cows as well as gardening. We also love kayaking, fishing, and spending time at the lake as a family. I LOVE being a teacher, and I come from a long legacy of teachers and coaches in my family that I admire.
I promise I will do everything I possibly can to make sure we have a wonderful year filled with memories and learning. I'm here for you and your family!
