Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Melissa McKeown. I am the Title 1 teacher at Haynes Elementary, servicing grade levels K-5th for Reading and Math interventions. I participate in all the RTI meetings and serve as a support system for the teachers. I have taught in KISD for 9 years. My teaching experience includes PK-4th grades, with most of that being a reading specialist.
I was born in Weatherford, Texas. I attended schools K-12th in the same town. My teachers were very influential to me, inspiring me to become a teacher at a young age. I married my high school sweetheart. We have been married 35 years and have two awesome sons and precious daughter in loves. They have blessed us with our three grandchildren (all under 2 years). We have two beautiful daughters and one fantastic son in love. We have a very loyal dog named, Rocky.
My interests include traveling, church activities, playing board games, cooking and spending time with family.
I received an Associate’s Degree through Weatherford Junior College and a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education through Tarleton State University in Stephenville. I am certified to teach K-8th grades. I love teaching in Killeen ISD because of the student diversity and the intentional, purposeful, professional development opportunities it provides for its teachers.
