Kindergarten - Alef Class

Shalom, and Welcome to Kindergarten!


I am Heather McKay, and I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten at B’nai Israel this year!  I am from Northern Nevada and I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from BYU-Idaho. After graduating, I taught middle school band and music in the Phoenix, Arizona area and in Idaho.  When we moved to East Lansing, Michigan, I decided to focus on being a mom and teaching private flute and piano lessons.  Last year, I went back to school for my master’s degree in elementary education at the University of Florida, completing a year-long internship in second grade.  I love spending time with my family, and have noticed how my children’s interests have inspired my lessons.  My daughter loves writing, crafts, and music.  My son loves science experiments, STEM projects, and reading.  I can’t wait to get to know your children, and to incorporate their interests in class!
