My name is Frances Mackenzie. I am originally from San Diego, have moved often, but always have come back for the amazing weather. My husband and I enjoy running, beach time, bike rides and walks on the weekends. We travel every year to meet up with my half brothers who live in Belgium. We love to travel and have a long bucket list of places we plan to visit. For the past 15 years I have been teaching 1st or 2nd grade in the San Diego Unified School District. I moved to McKinley this year to experience the strong sense of community. When I was a 1st grader I enjoyed writing the most. Everyday is a new day and I look forward to watching each student grow and become independent. I am very excited to be part of the McKinley community.
