Degrees and Certifications:
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!
