You Can Do More: Jeff Floyd 8/8
By Jeff Floyd former Truman High School Head Coach
It has arrived… the last two days… the bane of all coaches, especially fall coaches.
Professional Development In-Service on Pre-Season Practice days.
Now, I never wanted to shirk any of my teaching duties or responsibilities, but I can remember stressing, mentally going through “to-do” lists, and thinking to myself virtually every minute of each session …
Now, that being said, each year I go back to something I learned over 30 years ago in my first year of teaching and coaching. I was at Blue Springs High School, and was an assistant in Fred Merrell’s football program. Fred would always say, before each clinic we attended that,
So with Fred whispering in my ear, I approached this year, as always, trying to find that one kernel to take away that will improve my teaching and coaching.
This year it slapped me in the face… and a Seth Godin post that I read early in the morning was prescient:
Most of the last two days has revolved around data… from Performance Based Teacher Evaluations, to MSIP, MAP test, STAR test, and all educational related data in between.
The big takeaway… finding efficient and productive ways to use all the data we have access to…. and how can we best use the data to help improve the performance of our students?
How does this relate to coaching?
If you’re not prepared to change your diet or workouts, don’t get on the scale!
You Can Do More… your brain is lying to you…. Don’t Believe It!
