Robert Beckmann
    Physical Education Teacher
    I am excited to be at Manatee School for the Arts teaching Physical Education -- Life Fitness, Comprehensive Fitness, & Recreational Activities.  I graduated from the University of Arkansas, where I worked as a sports reporter covering college football, men and women's basketball, and baseball and softball.  Since then, I moved to Florida and became the Head Coach for High School Girls' Basketball at Sarasota Military Academy, along with teaching PE.  In both 2016 and 2017, I was awarded Coach of the Year in my district for basketball.
    In August 2018, I was hired to be the top Assistant Men's Basketball Coach at the State College of Florida to coach college basketball.
    At MSA, I look forward to teaching and inspiring students to pursue their own personal physical fitness and enjoyment of sports.  My goal is to help each student fulfill their own personal potential within an athletic environment.  I love the artistic culture of MSA that encourages students to be creative and embrace their passions.
