Mrs. McKinney

Hi KMS Students! 

I am Mrs. McKinney and I have been at KMS since 2007,  teaching CTE Business Skills.  

I enjoy teaching students how to type, use MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and understand the world of Business!

I am also the KMS Yearbook advisor, where I love taking fun pictures of all the wonderful students, staff, and amazing activities around our school.

I hope to see you in class this year! 

Mrs. McKinney
