During pre-med courses Cat web learned an interesting philosophy: See one, Do one, Teach one. This has influenced her teaching style and created some pretty big ripples in Spring Branch ISD.

Another successful year in the “books” for the SMB. I hope we have improved the overall quality, appeal and entertainment of the show. as always this is the place to reach us if you have someone or something you want to hear about.
At their previous places of employment both Bubba Wilson and Cat Lawrence had an Xbox Kinect. Ours has been open for about 2 weeks and have not used it for athletes yet. They have most of the knowledge and insight, I am just the pretty face on this one.
I would recommend viewing the YouTube or Ustream video of this episode to watch the conversation.
Shenne Lewellen and Renatta Delello took a trip with Christian Sports Medicine Alliance (CSMA) last year and each of them is planning to take another trip this summer. To paraphrase: “You can not return to your everyday job without being changed after going on a trip like this.”

The only time in Sarah and Kim have ever been backup plans was this week when our scheduled guests had to cancel about 2 hours prior to show time. They did a great job jumping in and going with the flow. Sarah was with us in studio and Kim was listening live and commenting in the chat room. It was a great excercise in perseverance and flexibilty. We also had a record number of four live listeners. Keep with us as we build up the profession of Atheltic Training.
Year round organized sports are too much for young kids. If the professionals don’t play the same sport 12 months a year then why would you ask a 12- 18 year old too? Listen to the stats and let your kid rest.
Kevin Brown, former athletic trainer and longtime friend of Jeremy’s joins us to have a couple good laughs as we tell stories of trouble we go into during our time as student athletic trainers. CAUTION: You may not want your students to hear this.

As a VP and Director of Communications for Meador Staffing, Morgan Sheen knows about building your brand through social media. If you want to be successful at something then talk to someone who has found success in that area. That’s what I am doing here.
There is a real truth to the proverb ”With age comes wisdom.” Mr. Ben Meador has 44 years of experience hiring people. They have been successful through several poor job markets because of the visionary leadership of Mr. Meador. My favorite thing is that Mr. Meador never hesitated when I asked him to come speak to our students and listeners.
Bubba Wilson has had a prolific career throughout Texas as an Athletic Trainer. Because of his vast experiences, he has a lot more to say than we can fit into a normal length podcast. This means we get to invite him back for another episode.
Dawn is the Head Athletic Trainer at NCAA Division 1 Rice University. On her off day from traveling with the team she came out here to Pasadena to meet with our students. The best part about the interview are the questions and discussions that happen before the show starts. I love being able to connect the students to the professional world.
Dr. Barry Wiese willingly stepped in to help us bridge the gap and build a better relationship between Athletic Trainers and Chiropractors. We had a great time and the students came up with some good questions.
Mr. Barrett takes a break from lunch duty at Dobie High School to share with us about the change in job from full time athletic trainer to administrator. He worked at Lamar University, and a few high schools before stopping at Jackson’s alma mater. My favorite part is the reason he made the switch.
In my opinion psychology is the opposite of science, but with a little bit of persuasion from Melissa Romell I can see the value of psychology in sports. Once again our district is awesome at making resources available. Melissa works as a teacher in our district and volunteers her time and services to help our students succeed.
We are glad to have the award-winning coach David Sell on to talk about weight loss on a very busy schedule.

Finding time to get healthy isn’t easy but for Coach Sell life will never be the same.
LaShelle joins us to discuss career options other than being employed full-time in a typical high school setting.

Join our Sports Medicine 1 students as they discuss what they have liked, disliked, and learned about the course through the first five weeks. If I didn’t know any better I would say some of them want to take my host spot. Michelle, Sarah, Mariah, AnaKaren, and Alondra all share their opinions.
Curious students get to record our first broadcast of the new year. I must admit it was not planned, practiced or rehearsed in any way. You will hear some background noise as our studio is in the middle of the athletic facility. Thanks to Laura, AnaLaura and Michelle for just jumping in and going with it.
Jackson & Doc close out the year with a short episode discussing the change from science and math teachers to Sports Medicine teachers. We also give some tips that have helped make our lives as Athletic Trainers easier.

Michelle Nettles from South Houston High School joins us for our final installment of “Can’t We All Just Get Along” – Trainers in Pasadena ISD.

I could not do this successfully without his support or the amazing editing abilities of my beautiful wife.
This is our first ever podcast with two guest and two hosts and our first ever live studio audience. Of course it had to be my Alma Mater J. Frank Dobie High School. Jesse Lopezand Christi Baker are both in their first year in the district and at Dobie, but they are not newbies to the profession.
