My name is Keith McCray and I was born and raised in Chester, Pennsylvania. I graduated from Wilson College with a degree in Education and Walden University with a Masters of Science in Education with a dual focus in Mathematics and Reading as well as a second Masters of Science in Educational Leadership. I am a father of two; a son, Keith, and a daughter, Krista, and have been married to my best friend for thirteen years. I have been teaching for 6 years; all of them with Washington County Public Schools. Teaching is my second career, I spent the better part of a decade as a law enforcement officer. Besides teaching, I am passionate about learning, Philadelphia/Carolina sports, traveling, and exercising. I strive to make learning personal and fun. The mechanics of writing has always been a struggle for me. I still struggle with it, but I work hard every day trying to become a better writer. I do this by practicing my craft day after day. I hope to inspire my students to be creative with their writing while cultivating a desire to want to write. Failure is ok but it is not ok to be content with failing. Enjoy our blog site and the stories that my students are creating. These are all works in progress and we are updating them as quickly as time allows us to.
