• Mr. Stakel
      I am so happy to be starting my thirteenth year as a Liberty Eagle.  As a charter staff member I have seen this school grow, and I could not be more proud to work at the best school in Loudoun County!  Prior to coming to Liberty I taught physical education for four years in Fairfax County, and before that I taught for three years in my home state of Connecticut.  In addition to PE, I also coach and teach swimming and have done that for well over 25 years. 

      I love being a teacher, and it is my hope that every student finds the fun in personal health, exercise, and fitness related games and activities.  I'm looking forward to another great year with incredible kids and and our amazing staff!  My interests include swimming, biking and hiking, and spending time with my family and golden retriever named Maverick. I also love to read and work in my yard. 

      I live in Purcellville with my wife (Erin), and my daughter (Morgan) is a cheerleader in her second year at the University of South Carolina.  Go Gamecocks!!!
    And sorry Washington football fans, but my family lives and breathes the Dallas Cowboys!
