Physical Education (PE)

Jogging Exercise.pngHello My Name Is...



I am beginning my 30th + season as a state-certified Physical Educator. In addition, I hold a master's degree in Educational Administration from the University of South Carolina in Columbia. Originally from Dillon, SC, I now live in Florence, SC with my wife, Michelle, who is a Middle School Health Educator in Florence School District One. We have two children: W. Michael II and Michaela L. Hayes. Michael is a sophomore student-athlete at Georgia State University. He is a punter/kicker on the Panthers' football team. Michaela is a junior student-athlete at West Florence High School. She is a hurdler on the Knights' track team, and a volleyball player.

I am truly blessed to be serving in Florence County School District Three! It is really an honor to help in developing, educating, and enabling our students in becoming lifelong learners and global leaders. As I continue teaching in the District, I am excited about the partnership with the faculty/staff at Lake City Early Childhood Center of the Arts. I will work diligently to assist our students in achieving a quality education, while they experience a successful year!
