Let me share a middle school story…

“I firmly believe that teachers and coaches can make a difference in a student’s life. During my middle school years, I was already behind a year by being held back in 1st grade. I was a child that was not very confident in myself, feeling like I wasn’t as smart as others, not feeling comfortable in my own skin and exhibiting what was called nervous energy. This is now called ADHD. I ended up failing 7th grade and I was starting to spiral out of control. That is when my PE teacher asked me to run cross country for him. His mentorship along with running gave me much needed confidence in myself. I became more involved in school and eventually received an athletic scholarship to a local community college. Without this teacher / coach investing his time and energy into me, I cannot imagine where I would be at this time of my life.”
