My Students

I am starting my 2nd year as head girls basketball coach. Our student-athletes are grades 7-12 and come from two different schools, as our sports teams are co-op'd with the neighboring district. These girls have seen four different coaches over the last six years. My goal is to change this cycle, and give them the attention and dedication they deserve.

These young ladies, that I am lucky enough to coach, are hardworking, compassionate, caring, and talented, and I believe that the next step in their development is to know and understand that someone believes in them and is continuing to invest in the program.

I'm hoping to develop a supportive and inclusive culture that develops these student-athletes and prepares them for the real world.

What impresses me most about this group is their ability to mesh as a unit, despite the fact that half the team attends a different school 30 miles away. If you were to watch any of our practices or team functions, you would never be able to guess which kids attended which school. I am truly am blessed to coach this group, and am extremely eager to work with them again this coming season!

My Project

These whiteboards will impact our student-athletes learning and development in a variety of ways. We would like to use the two large magnetic dry-erase boards as "Goal Boards" to help track our progress throughout the season. These would be set up in each home school's girl's locker room.

Our girls basketball program believes that goal-setting is essential to development, both as a team and as individuals, and having a visual representation on how we are doing would make a tremendous difference in our student-athletes' learning and development.

The movable board we would like to bring on the road with us, as many of the small schools we play at lack a locker room board to write on. We believe that the ability to diagram and model specific situations from the game is crucial for both individual and team development, and having this board would guarantee that no matter what facility we are at, we would have access to this important teaching tool.
