While training with the U.S. rowing team, Geoff McKee found a passion with a greater inner reward- teaching.
"In between training sessions, I was a substitute at a school for court committed students in Philadelphia," McKee said."I fell in love with education.And I really liked the impact I had on strangers, these young people that were trying to find their way."
A long journey full of teaching jobs and administrative stints landed McKee his current title as principal of Boca Raton Community High School.
His educational journey
After a back injury ruined his chances of heading to the Olympics, McKee coached rowing at the University of Miami and taught adult education.
"I loved it, but it was painful to be that close to the sport and not be able to compete," he said.
McKee then turned to education as a full time job.He received his doctorate in educational leadership at UM.Shortly after, he began his first job teaching kindergarten at Liberty City Elementary School in Miami.It was during this time that McKee was inspired to become a principal.
"I realized the impact a principal could have on a school community," McKee said."My passion was sparked."
He then went on to hold various assistant principal jobs in Miami.Some of his education contributions included combining an elementary and middle school into one school and working with Governor Jeb Bush to establish the first Florida charter school.
But as his family began to grow, McKee and his wife were looking for a safe place to raise children.
That's when the couple discovered Boca Raton.
"We wanted the kids to be exposed to people from all backgrounds," said McKee, who has four children, Grace, Clare, Zebedee, and Max."We found it in Boca Raton with the quality of education and diversity."
And shortly after the move, McKee landed a job as assistant principal at Spanish River Community High School.
"I had no high school experience so I thought it would be a good learning experience for me," said McKee, who worked there for four years.
McKee was transferred to neighboring Boca Raton Community High School in 2003.The principal was surprised but elated to be so close to home.
"I could have been placed anywhere like Riviera Beach," he said.
The Boca principal said he has watched the school transform.Some of the academic successes include a jump in the last two years of 71 points in performance in the state grading scale and averaging more than 1100 AP test compared to 200 in 2003.
McKee credits this success to dedicated staff, teachers, parents and students.
"The students and teachers had full confidence that if they worked hard, they could do it," he said.
Despite these everyday obstacles, McKee said he wouldn't trade his position at Boca High.
"What distinguishes Boca High is that all the members of the school community are excited to be here.The teachers adore their students and look forward to coming to work everyday and there are dynamic parent volunteers on campus each day," he said.

Geoff McKee, principal of Spanish River High School, is talking to other school principals about donations from their campus.He also plans to distribute information about the dress drive when prom tickets are purchased next year.
"I think she has a winning concept," McKee said."I think it could be huge.People realize they will not wear the dress in the future.It's a sentimental thing.They don't want to give it away.But when they realize they are helping someone, they feel good about it."
McKee said he has seen girls in dresses they were not proud of, and he knows of girls who didn't go to the prom because they couldn't afford a nice dress.
"It's a shame," he said."This could give them a moment to be a Cinderella.Morgan's kind of like a fairy godsister."
A rack in the corner of the consignment shop is already filled with an assortment of long and short chic dresses in soft colors and fabrics.Many of the dresses still have price tags, while others have been worn.Some have designer labels.
