Welcome to Young Fives!

My name is Barb McConnell and I will be your child's teacher this year.  I am a graduate of Michigan State University with a degree in Early Childhood Development and Elementary Education.  This is my 7th year teaching Young Fives (previously taught 4 year old preschool for 11 years) and I am looking forward to making your child's experience a fun and positive one.

I am married and have three children. My husband works for Ford Motor Co. in the IT department. My daughter, Megan, is a first grade teacher in Kalamazoo and she and her husband,Blake, are expecting their first child in November! I am very excited to become a grandma!!! My son, Jay, lives in Livonia and works for Loan Depot as a mortgage loan originator and my youngest daughter, Molly,  just moved to a house in Ferndale and is working for MRM McCann as a project manager. We are finally empty nesters!! We have a three year old terrier/shepherd mix who is lots of fun and keeps me very busy!!  I enjoy sports (Spartans and Red Wings in particular!), reading, shopping and spending family vacations at our cottage in the Upper Peninsula.  

Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.(bmcconne@livoniapublicschools.org)
