Dr. Acocelli, Assistant Principal


Hello SMA family! I sincerely hope that the 2018-19 school year will be full of learning, fun, and adventure! Our theme this year is "Kindness Matters". We will be teaching, modeling, and rewarding kindness throughout this school year.

I have had the privilege of working for The Schools of McKeel Academy for 11 years now. South McKeel is again an "A" school and I am so proud of the hard work of our teachers and students. 

At South McKeel we have:

  • caring and dedicated teachers (the best of the best)
  • one-to-one iPad technology
  • a focus on what is best for STUDENTS
  • flexible scheduling and active learning
  • parent involvement
  • teacher collaboration

I have always had a firm belief that ALL students can learn with the proper motivation, support, and opportunity. I will continue to strive to be part of that support system for students as they learn and grow in middle school.

After obtaining a Bachelor's degree in Business (Finance and Computer Science) from Florida Southern College, and a Master's Degree in Educational Technology from University of Central Florida, I taught many grade levels throughout my 26 year educational career  --from Kindergarten through college.  Ten years ago, I completed my Doctoral Degree in Organizational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University and became an administrator.

I look forward to another great year in this wonderful community here at South McKeel Academy. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can help you or your child in any way.

Sincerely - Dr. Acocelli
