Last semester I got an early student coaching job through one of my teachers through a Jonesboro Elementary school and this summer I was able to work with another coaching job. I have been blessed with these amazing opportunities so young in my career.

I absolutely love the classes in the HPESS building. The teachers are amazing and there is something there for everyone, but as I said when you get out of the HPESS many teachers do not try to make their classes interesting.

I absolutely love the Physical Education program at my school. All of the staff inside the HPESS building are helpful and show great interest in my graduation plan and me staying on track to graduate on time. This is all great however when you get out of the HPESS building it almost feels like the staff is workin against you. They bounce you around from building to building all day long just to get one little thing done.
