Welcome Wildcats! I am thrilled to be back for another year with the Wildcat Nation!  This will be my eighth 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 37 years. I have been a Varsity Baseball coach here at Mckeel for the past 13 years. I have been married for 12 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! 



  • All students will be required to dress out in the McKeel PE uniforms!



  • If students are not dressed out in the McKeel PE uniforms, they will receive a fine for not being prepared for class!



  • Students must dress out EVERY DAY unless otherwise told by their individual teachers!!!


  • 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).
