My mission as a teacher and coach is to prepare students and athletes for the next level. This includes not only acadmic and baseball skills but life skills such as integrity, teamwork, respect, sportsmanship, commitment, humility, discipline, self-control, dedication, determination, preparation and decision making. It is my mission to run a program and classroom that not only teaches these values and fundamentals but lives them and models them everyday. If the student or athlete has been impacted in anyway, it is my hope that I have helped them to become a better person, citizen and leader who makes a positive difference in the world.
