Young Heavy Weight Coach looking for a college or hs spot

Posted about 2 years ago by aparker61

Hello my name is AJ Parker;I spent 3 years at Cypress Creek High School in Orlando, FL as the assistant head wrestling coach, having 5 wrestlers place in the state tournament, and 2 student athletes sign Division I wrestling scholarships. I also spent several hours with the freshman and sophomore wrestlers on how to set and achieving academic goals. I am currently an assistant coach at South Park High School in the Pittsburgh area, working with both the middle and high school teams, predominantly with the upper weights.

As a four year member of both the Thiel College Championship Football and Wrestling teams, I have learned how to set and achieve goals, the success that hard work brings, and the fact that with a positive attitude and a hard work ethic, anything is obtainable. As President of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, in addition to the day to day responsibilities of managing the fraternity, I was responsible for community service and philanthropy. As the Student Manager in the Thiel College Admissions office, I was an Assistant to the Dean of Admissions, and responsible to assist prospective students with selecting Thiel, and helped develop marketing, communications and public relations materials and newsletters. In May 2008, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy. During the 2008 political elections, I served as Assistant Campaign Manager for the successful campaign of Steve Crisafulli. The Crisafulli campaign for Florida House district 32 was the only race in the state in which an incumbent was defeated by a challenger. After helping the Crisafulli campaign to victory I was hired as the Chief of Staff for the legislative office of Representative John Tobia.

I currently teach Algebra I, II, Geometry, and Life Skills math at the Academy School in Baldwin Pennsylvania. I have also taught 6-8 grade math at West Ridge Middle School. I have taken and passed the Florida State Exceptional Education Student Certification test, as well as the Praxis I and Praxis II exams. I have spent most of my time as a teacher working in Special Education and Alternative Education class rooms predominantly in math. Working in these settings has helped me develop a dynamic and exciting teaching style that helps my students achieve success.

I am a highly motivated, task orientated and goal driven team player looking for a great opportunity. I am confident that with my background and leadership abilities, I can make a positive contribution to your team. I would look forward to having the privilege to further discuss career opportunities and become a member of your team. I can be reached at Aparker61@gmail.com or 407-405-8865.
