Welcome to 5th Grade

Meet Mrs. McGeehan

My name is Kelly B. McGeehan. I have been teaching for 20 years. I have had the privilege to teach in a variety of school settings and assignments.  I have taught in Illinois and Georgia, in rural and urban settings.  I have taught second, third, fourth, and fifth grades, as well as, gifted (1st-5th) and EIP (K-5th).  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, and my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Albany State University.

I was born and raised in Alton, IL, a small town on the banks of the Mississippi River.  I moved to Albany, GA in 1997 and to Lake Park, GA in 2007, where I currently reside.

My husband, Robert and I were married in 1997, and have two sons, Mason and Cade.  Mason is 19 years old and attends Georgia Southern University where he's studying Biology. Cade is 16 years old and is a junior at Lowndes High School. Cade is a Georgia Bridgemen and he is active in the Lowndes High School Chess Club.

Some of the activities I enjoy doing are spending time with my family and friends, scalloping, fishing, boating, camping, traveling, watching my boys in their endeavors, and reading.
