Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I am so excited to be a part of the McKeel staff as a robotics teacher. This year, I will be teaching Robotics II (Robotics Design Essentials), Robotics III (Robotic Systems), Robotics IV (Robotic Applications Capstone) and Robotics V (Engineering Design and Development). As a part of the curriculum for Robotics III, IV, and V, I am the lead coach of six FIRST Tech Challenge competitive robotics teams (7017, 11619, 13624, 14850, 18518, and 19954).
I am in my 21st year of teaching and my ninth year at McKeel Academy of Technology. Prior to joining this staff, I came from Rochelle School of the Arts where I taught middle school science and robotics. I began my teaching career teaching at Crystal Lake Middle School. I am a graduate of the University of Florida and a proud fan of the Florida Gators. I have attended every Florida Gators home football game since the start of the 1996 season.
