I know that my career is not just about success and failure in the classroom and on the basektball court. It is about relationships. I have dedicated myself to helping build the character and integrity of every student and athlete, both in the classroom and on the court. It is my hope that each student I get to work with has a positive experience by being pushed toward their potential, encouraged, supported, and taught while growing into productive young adults. My goal is never to forget that the educational system is a training ground for instilling lifelong principles. I recognize and accept the responsibility of being a mentor, teacher, and a coach, and I do so with the utmost pride and respect. When a student leaves my program, I want them to walk away confident, encouraged, satisfied, and better prepared for life.
