Learn Something About Me


Welcome Wildcats! I am thrilled to be back for another year with the Wildcat Nation!  This will be my tenth year of teaching and this year I will be teaching Physical Education. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation with an emphasis in Physical Education from Florida Southern College. I have also earned a Master of Science degree in Sports Management from the United States Sports Academy. I am certified to teach Physical Education, Business Education, and Exceptional Student Education.


I graduated from Lake Gibson High School and have lived in Lakeland for 39 years. I have been a Varsity Baseball coach here at McKeel for the past 15 years. I have been married for 14 years to Donna Rees, who is a 6th grade teacher at McKeel Academy Central.


  • I am looking forward to another great year at McKeel Academy! 


  •     *Students will not be required to dress out for PE this year

  •     *If a student wishes to dress out, he/she must dress out in a McKeel PE uniform!


  • If you are ABSENT or have a note (from home or Doctor) to NOT PARTICIPATE you MUST complete an assignment to receive a grade for that day in P.E. You will have a zero for the day you are absent/sit out until the make up work is turned in.

Your make up work options are:


    * a thinking map (with at least 5 points) on a sport(s) or health related topic or
    * 2 paragraph summary of a sport or health related article (include the link or article).
