Welcome to the 2021-2022 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 I (Foundations of Robotics), Robotics II (Robotics Design Essentials), Robotics III (Robotic Systems), and Robotics IV (Robotic Applications Capstone. As a part of the curriculum for Robotics III and IV, I am a coach, along with Mrs. Stacey and Mrs. Fallaw, of five FIRST Tech Challenge competitive robotics teams.
I am in my 19th year of teaching and my seventh 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 Gator home football game since the start of the 1996 season.
