Mr. Ed Huechtker

ABOUT ME: I grew up in a military family so I never lived anywhere for more than a few years, but this allowed me to experience a lot of different people and places. I graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Exercise Sports Science. I have played, coached and officiated Middle School and High School sports all of my adult life. I feel that a student’s participation in athletics is the greatest classroom there is. I currently coach football and track here at Sullivan. I’m married with two children, my wife is an occupational therapist and a graduate of the University of Florida as well. My son is a graduate of the University of South Carolina and my daughter is a current student at USC.

LEARNER PROFILE: I feel that I would fall into the “Risk Taker” category of IB learners. I am always looking for a challenge in life and in sports. I feel that many children today are afraid to fail and therefore don’t try. I try to encourage students participate, put themselves out there and try. It is said that one can learn more from failing than winning
