4th Grade English Language Arts & Reading and Social Studies
Hi, I am Makenzie Keyser! This is my third year in education and my first year teaching at Ford Elementary! Previously, I taught First Grade in Little Rock, Arkansas.
I grew up in Cedar Park, Texas, and attended Round Rock High School. I graduated from Texas State University in 2021 with a Bachelor’s degree in Education. Shortly after graduating, I moved to Arkansas for two years. I am SO happy to be back in Central Texas and near my family again! I have two wonderful parents, an older sister who teaches high school, and a younger sister who is attending the University of Texas. I also have two nephews aged 8 and 5. Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and cat (Ares), going to concerts, and reading. I will also be coaching an 11U Volleyball team with my younger sister this year!
I am thrilled to be teaching 4th grade! I believe that children are the heart of our community, and I am dedicated to creating a thoughtful, safe, and engaging classroom. I am looking forward to an amazing year!
