Woodbridge High School Advising & Coaching

Fall '18

My time at Woodbridge was incredible. I loved learning about just how impactful esports can be for students. I have so many memories of students blossoming into their own and developing skills I know will be used down the road.

I still remember the first day I walked into the activities office and asked if they had an esports club. I knew that Woodbridge would be welcoming to an ex-pro esports athlete, but not I couldn't dream of what I was in store for.

At Woodbridge I learned so much about how to inspire students to take meaningful action that aligns with their passions and interests, and loved every second of it.

 

We had a lot of success with Woodbridge High School Esports. Before I joined the club as an advisor and coach, the club was in a bit of a state of recovering from a few unfortunate events that led to a lot of member drop out. But, I was determined to grow the student involvement and recruit all the highest performing esports talent on campus. As you can see we had early success with hosting events in the photo on the right, students were operating and participating in a Super Smash Bro's intramural tournament.

Club Recruiting

Inspiring these students is what I lived for. I loved being a part of helping them explore their passions and grow their community. Here are photos of the club recruiting during the club drive. With very little direction from me, 95% student-led!

My time with Woodbridge as a Student-Teacher advisor and coach was irreplaceable. I am so thankful for these students, and recognize this time as a major pivot point that inspired me to commit to a career in academic esports.
