The struggle to go against the system can be difficult. This can create conflict between the parties involved. As a football coach, I have experienced situations that required me to challenge other teachers as well as administrators. I had a student athlete that had a rough home life and struggled academically. The student was given an extremely low grade on their report card during the quarter. When he learned his eligibility was at risk, he committed to improving his grades. He made b’s and c’s the next two quarters drastically improving his grades. The grade the student received in the first quarter was so low that he could not recover even if he got all A’s. I went to the administration about the issue and a meeting occurred with administration, the teacher, the student, his guardian, and me. In the meeting we discussed the situation and reached an agreement that would benefit all students. The student remained ineligible for the season, but the administration decided to put a grade cap of 60 for a failure grade on report cards moving forward. If a student failed a quarter and worked hard to pull their grades up, they still can pass the class. I have always tried to advocate for the interests of the student. Coaching has provided me with a unique opportunity to get to know families. It provides me with insight into student’s home life and some struggle because of their victims of circumstances.
