How did you come to work with students who learn differently?
Growing up, we have all seen how gym classes go. The most gifted athletes will take over the class and make the experience not fun at all for students gifted in other areas. Seeing that, it has been my mission to make being active fun for as many people as I can. Coming from a collegiate recreation background at LSU and Eastern Kentucky, I came across Beacon College as a great opportunity to be intentional in my mission. In addition to working in the Fitness and Athletic Department, I teach classes to reintroduce sports and fitness to a student community that may not have had the best experience growing up.
