Defining Moment in my Education When I was about to begin high school, a coach called me up and said I was on his cross country team. I had not signed up but said "OK" not knowing what I was getting myself into. He trained, supported, and encouraged me throughout high school in cross country, track, and life. I spent all my time with my friends on the team throughout high school and made great lasting friendships. I began high school with a history of struggling in my classes and getting into trouble regularly. I ended high school a radically different person: doing well in school, having really good friends, and an athletic scholarship to college. My coach was a significant part of my transformation and I hope to influence my students for the better as well.
