Elmore Park Middle School

Mrs. Dana McKelvy » Welcome


I am Mrs. Dana McKelvy.  The 2018-19 school year will be my 28th year as a classroom teacher.  I taught 9 years of elementary school and spent 14 years teaching 7th grade here at EPMS.  This will be my fifth year teaching 8th grade ELA.  I am teaching Co-Teach Standard ELA with Mrs. Colleen Gideon this year and will continue teaching Exceptional ELA as well.
I am a resident of Bartlett.  My husband and I have been married for 24 years.  He teaches 6th grade science at Houston Middle School in Germantown.  We have three children, all of whom attended Bartlett schools, including EPMS.  Dhanielle is almost 24 now and lives in Murfreesboro.  Camryn is 20 and is starting her junior year at the University of Memphis, triple majoring in English (with an ESL endorsement), Spanish, and French.  Holden is 16 and is starting his junior year at Bartlett High.  He was a member of the JV soccer team last year and hopes to play for BHS again this year.  We have been members of the Bartlett community since the early 90s and really enjoy living and working here.
Our mission here at Elmore Park is to "prepare students for lifelong learning, effective leadership, and a productive life."  We also believe that "taking 100% responsibility while building lasting relationships will produce extraordinary results."  Working together, we can help our young people to reach their highest potential.
