Principal's Page

Hello and welcome to McKell Elementary Principal’s page, my name is Daniel Gullett.  I have been a lifelong resident of Greenup County. I am a graduate of Greenup County High School and Morehead State University.  I currently reside in Lloyd with my wife, Sara and our two sons, Jackson and Gage.  I began my teaching career in 2002 at Central Elementary in Lewis County.  While at Central Elementary I taught 3rd grade reading, 5th grade Math and Social Studies and more recently was the PE teacher.  I have been teaching for 18 years.  I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, Master’s Degree in School Administration and my Rank 1 certification in DPP.  I am very blessed to have the opportunity to be the Principal at McKell Elementary.  I look forward to working with all stakeholders in order to provide the best education possible for the students at McKell Elementary.  

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 [email protected]

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