Q: What about coaching girls waterpolo makes you happy

A: I like coaching Girls Water Polo because it is such a difficult sport to play well. Many people can swim, throw, and wrestle with their opponent. But only a few can do it effectively. It takes a decent coach to get players to that spot. 

 

Q: What’s your favorite part of being an english teacher

A: I love teaching English when a student suddenly gets what an author is presenting. I live for the “ah-ha” moment.

 

Q: Why did you choose to coach Alhambra Water Polo

A: I picked Alhambra because it’s close to my house.

 

Q: What’s your favorite part about Alhambra¬†

A: Alhambra is a great school because it is the only comprehensive high school in the “Coolest City in California.”
