Coaching philosophies differ all over the world, from one sport to another. They are the central foundation to any good coach’s success in his/her respected programs. A coach’s philosophy does not only guide and lead the other members of the staff in the right direction, but it also allows each athlete to know what is expected of them, and how they should behave. By being aware of a coach’s philosophy, the athlete is fully responsible for his/her actions both on and off the field of play. In the words of the great Nick Saban, "It 's about what you control, every minute of every day. You always have to have a winning attitude and discipline, in practices, weight training, conditioning, in the classroom, in everything. It 's a process."
I will inspire athletes to demonstrate good character. Sports do not have an influence on one’s character; however, coaches can strongly impact athletes’ character, both negatively and positively. For this reason, I will work to coach in ways that support the growth of athletes’ character and create learning opportunities and situations in which athletes can practice and learn from. As a coach, I will lead by example and demonstrate good character because actions speak louder than words. I will do this by embodying sportsmanship and respecting athletes, opponents, other coaches, and referees. I will also show this to athletes by respecting, caring, and being trustworthy. I will also lead by example by staying
So many Coaches have talent and dedication for what they do. I 'm proud to play for one that has a spectacular history of coaching. That coach is Dennis Lorio, who Graduated from LSU (Louisiana State University) with an economic degree and played baseball. “I love the intensity and the relationship in football” Coach Lorio explaining with a passionate expression. I can see it in his eyes that he is very dedicated and hardworking coach. As of now he is 62 years old and still willing to coach. “It’s not the same without coaching. The joy and the sorrow I feel during the season has been addicted to me. I’ve been in this game almost all my life and that is a very long time.”
I would like to become a high school cross country coach and I want this to be my dream entry-level job in sports. There are many reasons why I want this job. One reason is because I was on the cross country and track team in high school and I enjoyed be on the both teams. The second why I would like to do this is because I still run on my own and enjoy to this today. Also I would like to bring the joy I got out running and being on the two teams and bring it to other people. To me there are many other reasons why I would like to have this job but the reasons stated above are the most important to me and why I want this job.
The individual I chose to interview is Mrs. Felicia Colbert. She is a current assistant principal at my school. Mrs. Colbert’s experience familiarity extends from a classroom instructor to instructional educators as an assistant director. Her capability surpasses 15 years of service in and out the core content of science. Her experience in administration includes two years at middle school level and five years at a high school level as an assistant principal. I designated Mrs. Colbert as my professional to interview because I recently completed my administrator practicum under her supervision. Throughout those six months as an intern, I got to analyze just how much of an expert she is in administration leadership. Therefore,
In 2013, I moved from journalism to nonprofit administration because I wanted to be more directly involved in influencing social issues. At the NYC Leadership Academy (NYCLA), I helped oversee the school principal coaching program by managing paperwork, communicating with coaches and participants, scheduling events, and designing and
My first school board meeting as an administrator was held on February 23rd, 2016 at my school, Pierre Moran Middle School, one of three middle schools within the Elkhart Community Schools system. I wasn’t sure what to expect because we had spent so much time planning for the presentation our building principal, who is in her second year of administration and first year as building principal, was going to present to the board. I was probably more nervous than she was and all I had to do was stand up and be acknowledged as the Academic Dean. Nevertheless, it all went off with a hitch and we received kudos for our students, staff, and building maintenance.
Since August of 2015, I have had the privilege of working with an incredible leader in Andrea Williams, principal of Theresa Bunker Elementary School. She is the epitome of a well-rounded leader who exemplifies all of the qualities of a leader as described by House’s path-goal theory of leadership. Mrs. Williams works diligently each day to create a productive work environment. She is direct when she needs to be and is extremely respected by her faculty as a fair leader. As I have observed her over the past two years I have seen her leadership skills in action. I have been extremely impressed with her drive, passion, fairness, supportiveness and ability to create a positive climate and culture that makes work a
The Instructional leadership team meeting took place on September 20, 2017. The people who came to the meeting were: Miss. Amber Merrick, cooperating teacher, Melba Foster, field supervisor, and Aide K Soto, teacher candidate. The meeting started with introductions and acknowledgments by Aide K Soto. Followed by reflections on teaching activities that addressed the procedures, expectations, TEKS, warm-ups, and development of lessons. Miss. Soto reflected on the differences between Pre-AP classes and regular. During the discussion about improvement areas, Miss. Soto considered the importance of learning the student’s names, becoming more observant, and applying classroom management. Miss. Soto emphasized
Values and beliefs are a product of an individual’s own unique history, experiences and education, the essence of everything they do and the reason they place importance on some things more than others. A coach’s values and beliefs have a major impact on their coaching behaviour as they motivate them, help them make decisions, show us who they are and better understand them. In the sporting environment, they keep them motivated whilst they deliver and perform their sessions and help to develop their knowledge and understanding of people they meet on a daily basis. Values allow the coach to decide how to deliver each session and how to choose the contents and equipment for individuals they coach. As they can affect coaching performance,
Overcoming the fact that one day you will not be able to play your sport is one of the hardest things all athletes must one day go through. It is a fact of the game that one day your eligibility runs out or if you are one of the lucky few who play professionally, your body’s years of health do not last forever. Coaching just to be around the sport and spread the joy that sport gave you for so many years. My coaching philosophy relies extremely heavily on this information. I have always been a person who is passionate about the things I love because I do not believe in not putting your whole heart into something. The most critical component to success in whatever sport you love lies in honoring the game that so many before you loved and excelled at. Excelling and honoring the game means having respect for everyone involved with the sport. Giving respect to your coaches is something I learned from the beginning. Being respectful and having a positive attitude learned at a young age is something completely taken for granted until you have adults who can neither adapt nor be flexible when something does not go their way. Sport is a form of education in that it teaches you similar life lessons that will be useful for far longer than the amount of time that you spend actually playing it.
My experiences with my professional coaching sessions were very challenging to say the least. When I decided to begin graduate school, I never imagined I would be coaching my peers and they would be coaching me during my first quarter. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the experience and I learned a lot while participating. In my circle of friends, I am the one always handing out advice whether it is solicited or not. Because of this, I assumed these sessions would come natural to me. However, I learned by me forcing my opinion and advise on others I was trying to control them. Whitmore (2009), states
I’ve had quite the learning experience over the last few weeks. I had a chance to obtain valuable information and support from my principal. I learned so much about the administration role and how difficult it can be. When I began my interview, I felt overwhelmed and excited at the same time. My principal is also my mentor; she has been very supportive of me pursuing my dreams to be in administrator. As I conducted my interview I learned so much about the principal’s role. I asked my principal a series of questions. The questions were based on the Interstate School Leadership Licensure Consortium Standards (ISLLC). My first question was based on educational programs. The educational programs at any school need balance. While we live in a test results world, there needs to be a balance of focus. I look at the type of student I want my school to produce and I surround myself with a faculty and other staffs that not only share in the mission, but also will help every student succeed. In addition, as an administrator, I need to provide my faculty and staff with the tools and resources necessary to make everyone feel successful.
