"I am excited to become an AAM for a Multitude of reasons. First, I will be able to take what I have learned from my experiences over the past 27 years and implement them into a program that will emphasize, support, and supplement the work being done in the classroom. Having an athletics and activities program that is an extension of the classroom is of the utmost importance. Second, Through the AAM position, I feel I can effect positive change that will be beneficial to all parties involved in the educational process to include: the students, teachers, coaches, parents. Third, being able to provide a safe, nurturing environment where all students can feel empowered, develop leadership skills and grow socially are aspects I have always wanted to convey on a larger scale to ALL student/athletes."
