Philosophy: To combine athletics with academics. I have always thought that participating in athletics enhances the academic experience. I am a teacher before I am a coach and I always strive to help student- athletes grow as people. As much as I am a competitor (I don’t enjoy losing), I know a lot can be gained from a loss, as sometimes one actually learns more from losing than they do from winning. My goal with my students-athletes has always been to help them become better people. By participating in the State High Tennis Program I hope that student-athletes gain confidence, independence, self-reliance, the ability to communicate, learn what respect is, understand the concept of teamwork, and good sportsmanship.
