Mr. Athanas

7th Grade Team

I am completely honored by joining the faculty at South McKeel Academy.  This is my third year teaching middle school social studies and my first year at South McKeel.  I previously taught at Lake Gibson Middle in Lakeland, where I taught 6th grade World History, 7th-grade Civics, and 7th/8th grade US History.  I am originally from Boston (the birthplace of the American Revolution) and graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in History in 2008 from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC (our nation's capital), I also graduated with my Masters of Education from Northeastern University in 2015 in Boston.

I love the ability to connect the principles of our present government to what the founding fathers originally had envisioned over 200 years ago!   Before teaching, I worked in the areas of tourism, educational travel, and higher education. 

I look forward to teaching this year at South McKeel!  Go Wildcats!
