Kedera McElwee is a credentialed English teacher who holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Education, with an emphasis in Africana Studies. Though this is her fifth year teaching, she has nearly ten years of experience working with and teaching students in inner-city public and charter schools. As a result of her experiences, she has developed relevant and rigorous teaching practices that engage and challenge students throughout the learning process. Her student-centered teaching style is a product of her teaching philosophy, which is built on the belief that students can and must learn to think critically and creatively so that they can become agents of positive change in their families, communities, and other spheres of influence.
Ms. McElwee is committed to helping students believe in themselves as they work to connect the dots between their academics and aspirations. She is thrilled to a part of the Executive Prep family and looks forward to having a great year helping students shine, glow, and grow!
