Randy takes time away from his administrative duties to come chat with us about his new position in PISD as District Athletic Trainer
March is National Athletic Training Month
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.
This time I take a step back and let the students come up with the questions and run the show. We had two separate teams editing and producing the show so there will be two versions.
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. Not only is he a husband and father, but he is also a football and track coach with a full teaching load to top it off. 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. She works as an Outreach Athletic Trainer for the Methodist Hospital System providing care for many area schools and multiple events. Our first attempt at this show encountered some problems, but thankfully this time worked.
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.
