    About Mrs. Mikesell

    Hello and welcome to Mrs. Mikesell’s ELA Intervention Class!  I am thrilled to have your children this year and am looking forward to getting to know each one of them!

     Let me take a moment to introduce myself.  My name is Brandi Mikesell and this is my 4th year at Akimel A-al. It is my 6th year in Kyrene, I taught 5th grade at Milenio for the two years. This will be my 13th year of teaching. Middle School is my favorite group of kids to teach.  I've taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th and ELA in Jr. High.  

       I was born in a small town in Ohio and moved to Southern California when I was 10.  I ended up in Arizona after high school and have been here ever since.  I love the cool weather but enjoy spending summer inside and in the pool. In my spare time I like to watch sports especially football and basketball.  The best of all though is hanging out with my family. I have four great kids Chandler, Charlie, Kadence and Dalton. My husband is also a teacher in Kyrene.  I am excited to continue my journey at Akimel and being part of the Kyrene Family.
