Welcome to Mr. McKinzie's 6th Grade Classroom! This class is self-contained for Science, Social Studies, Math, and ELA.
My name is Mr. McKinzie, and this is my 11th year at Sonoma Ranch Elementary and my 10th year in the sixth grade classroom. I have transitioned from a substitute teacher, to a regular classroom teacher, to now a parent at Sonoma Ranch. This school and its students are now family. I am originally from Kansas and a graduate of the Barrett Honors College at ASU (So I root for both the Jayhawks and the Sun Devils!). I live in Gilbert with my wife, who is also a teacher, and my one year old and five year old daughters. We enjoy family time and an occasional beach trip when we are not in school.
