“In teaching you cannot see the fruit of a day’s work.

It is invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years.”

~Jacques Barzun

A letter from student to coach…

“Thank you for a lovely season. Thanks to your hard work and your commitment to this team, we came in first place. Also, you never gave up on our team especially when we had the ‘drama’. Thank you for teaching me how to play basketball at the position of left wing and point guard. Furthermore, thank you for putting me in 4 shifts. Because of you believing in me, supporting me and encouraging me, I became a better player, friend and person. You have the qualities that every coach needs which are hard work, commitment, and good leadership. I just can’t wait for next year in basketball. I’ve been practicing my shots and doing everything else just like you told me. All I have to say is that you’re the best coach I have ever had. On behalf of the team I want to say thank you so much and that you’re the best.”

Coaches, teachers, mentors, parents…never underestimate the effect your work and care has on a child.
