Mr. Keith Steele
Hi! My name is Mr. Steele, and I am THRILLED to be your 2nd grade teacher!
I was born in Harlingen, Texas and was raised in nearby Santa Rosa, Texas. I have one younger sister named Dana. I also have two nieces. Their names are Katelyn and Hailey, and they attend school in Arlington. After I graduated from high school, I moved to Denton, Texas to attend The University of North Texas. I received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Elementary Education, with a minor in Psychology. I also earned a Master’s degree in Education from the University of North Texas.
I started my career in Argyle, Texas where I taught 5th grade and 3rd grade. It was a lot of hard work but so much fun. I became a Mathews Maverick in 1995 teaching 3rd grade and loved every minute of it! I also taught English as a Second language (ESL) for six years at Forman Elementary and at Boggess Elementary before eagerly returning to Mathews to teach 2nd grade.
I live in Plano, Texas with my cute puppy dog, Allie. She is a fifteen-year old Black Lab who loves to play outside with her toys. She is wild and crazy, and she loves to cuddle with me. She doesn’t like it when I leave her alone, and she is afraid of thunder, lightening and the vacuum cleaner. She thinks she is a human and never wants to play with other dogs, just people!
On the weekends, you can usually find me spending time with family and friends or at my family’s ranch in Independence, Texas. I enjoy working in my yard and doing projects around my house. I love the trees in my yard. My favorite ones are my palm trees by my pool. It makes me feel like I am in Hawaii.
I’m so excited to be your teacher, and I know we are going to have a spectacular year together in 2nd grade!
