Mrs. Beth McKinley
My name is Mrs. McKinley, and I am absolutely thrilled to welcome each of you to our 4th grade class! This will be my fourth year teaching at Paine Elementary. I am looking forward to what is sure to be an exciting and fun-filled year! I teach Reading, Writing, and Social Studies. My partner teacher is Mrs. Jackson, who will be your Math and Science teacher.
I grew up in Rainsville, Alabama, a small town in northeast Alabama. My husband graduated from UAB and works in the Supply Chain department at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama. Our son, Cade, just turned one in May. He definitely keeps us on our toes! We enjoy spending time with friends and family, playing outside with our Basset Hound, Bullet, and traveling.
I attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham twice and graduated with a B.S. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education in 2012 and then graduated with my Reading Specialist Masters Degree in 2017. This will be my seventh year of teaching.
