Mrs. McKenzie Babcock

Welcome to 3rd grade! My name is McKenzie Babcock and I will be your child’s third grade teacher this year! I am a Minnesota girl at heart. I was born and raised in the Twin Cities and graduated from Burnsville High School. I then earned my bachelor’s degree in 2014 from the University of Kansas (Go Jayhawks!), and most recently earned my master’s degree in Elementary Education at the University of Minnesota in 2016.

I have been teaching in Minneapolis Public Schools since 2014. Before Hale, I taught 5th grade in Minneapolis Public Schools at Green Central for four years. I’m very excited to be a part of the Hale Community and get to know you and your family. I married my high school sweetheart in the summer of 2018 and we live with our big orange cat, Leo! I enjoy cooking, baking, running, walking around the lakes and spending time with my family and friends. You will get to know me very well throughout the year!

I enjoy teaching all subjects, although math is my favorite! My goal is to create a community within the classroom and with families where students are engaged and taking ownership of their learning. I am eager to maximize all students’ academic and social emotional success! Thank you for welcoming me into your community! Feel free to reach out at anytime!
