“My driving force in the classroom is to lead students to Christ first and foremost. The teaching of sports will allow students to learn teamwork, competition, drive, and communication. All of these skills will prepare them for the real world. My goal is to build up young men and women of Christ who are equipped with the proper skillset to excel in whatever professional environment they choose.
