I am Dock Daniel, a National Board Certified P.E. teacher at Mannsdale Upper. I have a master's degree from JSU in P.E. and will be finishing my Specialist Degree from DSU in Education Administration this year. I am entering into my 19th year as a teacher and am excited about our new school and our new PE program "Growing Better Citizens". With this new program we now have a 10 elements low ropes course, outdoor adventure activities and we will be developing a huge garden throughout the year. Our main focus is on developing teamwork, communication and cooperation skills while being physically active in PE classes.
I have played and coached many sports in life. I played college football at Lambuth University in Jackson, TN and professional football in Seinajoki, Finland. I have coached football from flag football to college level football, wrestling, cross-country, powerlifting and archery. I have run 13 half marathons, 2 full marathons and completed several kayak races. I currently work out at Orangetheory Fitness Madison and am preparing for the MS Blues Half Marathon in January with my wife of 16 years. I have two children that attend Mannsdale Upper as well.
