Principal's Page

Welcome to the principal’s page, my name is Aaron Collier. I began teaching 1994 and started working at Mckell Elementary in 2013. My degrees include a bachelor’s in psychology, a master’s in special education and school administration. I feel very fortunate to be in a position of leadership and to partner with all stakeholders in the South Shore community.

Despite being the second largest school in the district, we provide a small town feel and a personalized service, taking pride in addressing the needs of every individual.

McKell Elementary is located in South Shore Kentucky on US 23 along the Ohio River. We are a K-5 school with an average enrollment of 475 students. Courses offered as enrichment include: art, music, physical education, media, character education and technology.

If you have questions or concerns, I encourage you to call (606) 932-3383 or e-mail at

Our Vision: “TEAM”, Together Everyone Accomplishes More.

Our Mission: Students will graduate from McKell Elementary with the skills necessary for middle school as they journey towards college and career readiness.
