As a basketball coach at El Capitan High School, I took this position of Campus Supervisor because of my passion for working with kids. My goal is to one day become a physical education teacher or a physical therapist because of my love of sports and having an impact on the physical aspects of people's lives. I am a very positive, dependable, and caring person. I attribute these qualities to the way my parents raised me. I am very excited for this chapter of my life at BICS!
