Health Services Coordinator
Health Services Coordinator (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 7, 2014
I have been at St. Augustine High School for 10 years. During my first year, I developed a Sports Medicine class and program and implemented that during my second year. This year, I also started teaching an Anatomy/Physiology course. All the while, being the sole athletic trainer for 15 varsity sports. Saints has a stellar athletic program including many CIF and 3 state titles.
Saints is a Catholic boys school with predominately male work enviroment and all male administration. It is run by the Augustianian Order, with a monastery on campus and a campus ministry program ran by 2 priest. We attend mass weekly as a community and say prayer daily in class.
The hardest part of the job was during the beginning of the school year with the collection and review of the paperwork for 700+ students, 2 new classes and football season with 3 teams. It was definitely my busiest time of the school year.
Teaching has been the most enjoyable part of my job. I love inspiring my students as well as being inspired by them. One of my first students has followed in my footsteps and now is also a Certified Athletic Trainer and I also have another in med school. It has been such an honor to guide this young men into a good career path.
The staff at Saints is great, always supportive of each other and of all the students. Our students are very talented and we always have a good showing of faculty and staff at events such as plays, band performances, and of course athletics.
Loving Catholic environment
