I have been coaching for 22 years!
State awards,national qualifiers/awards, other tournament awards you'd like to highlight:
I have coached 10 national qualifiers and 14 state champions.
Your favorite thing about coaching:
My very favorite thing about coaching is the chance to work with students one-on-one and see them gain confidence in their abilities as their performances grow.
Your favorite camp memories
I have a lot of great memories of camp, as I started out as a junior staffer more than 25 years ago! It was at camp that I decided to be a speech coach!
Your goal for students in your section of camp:
I hope that the students in advanced IEs leave with a passion for their event and a toolbox of strategies that they can use to be successful in the coming year!
"I start getting excited about camp every year at our state speech tournament awards assembly when I see the students I worked with the summer before standing on the podium!"
