Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. DeeAnn McKeithan

     I am so excited to be joining the New Underwood team this year as the third-grade teacher.  I have been in education for 16 years as a Behavior Assistant, 2nd grade teacer, Literacy Assisstant, and Reading/Math Intervention Specialist.  I hold a Bachelor's Degree in K-8 Education (with an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education) and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. 

     My husband and  I live on acreage just outside of Rapid City where I have a few horses that I love to ride and show in my free time.  I also have 2 grown children.  My daughter lives in Pierre and is the HS Band Director for TF Riggs.  My son lives in Rapid and works at the Vertex.   My favorite way to spend a morning is curled up on my comfy chair with a cup of coffee, my Aussie (Chewy) in my lap, and reading a good book or learning something new.

     I look forward to partnering with you and your student as we tackle all of the exciting learning that 3rd grade offers us!  I believe that all children can learn.  I believe that every child needs to be given the opportunity to show their amazing growth and that I am privileged to be the fascilitator to their discovery.  If you ever have any questions, please feel free to reach me on our classroom Remind App or through the school email:
