Learn Something About Me

Go Wildcats!!! Hi, my name is Mr. Terry Stanley and this is my 24th year of teaching! I am married to my beautiful wife, Tammy Stanley and have two beautiful children, Luke and Laurel, who are both here at MAT.  Before joining the McKeel team I served six years in the United States Air Force.  After completing my service time and graduating from Southeastern University with a BA in Elementary Education I spent nine years at Lime Street Elementary both as a second and fourth grade teacher.  Next, I worked with 42 schools all over Polk County for five years as a Writing Consultant for Write Reflections.  Given the opportunity, I then took a position at South McKeel where I taught six more years as a Language Arts teacher.  That's when I gained my ESE certification and came out of the classroom to take a position as an Academic Coach in the BYPASS here at McKeel Academy for the past three years. Now I teach the Learning Strategies classes and work with small groups and individuals needing tutoring and testing accommodations.  It is amazing to be a part of the MAT team and I look forward to another great year of learning!  After surviving "Covid Year of 2020 - 2021" I know that 2021-2022 has got to be the best school year ever!!!  I can't wait for the adventure!!! Yes, after 23 years in Education...I still love my profession!!!
