James Ave

My life purpose is to glorify and honor Jesus Christ in all that I do. This life purpose transfers to my teaching. I want students to learn and apply information from my classes to their professional and personal experiences. God has gifted me with the abilities to take care of athletes and other physically active individuals as a Certified Athletic Trainer. I've also been gifted with the ability to develop and create new academic program and classes. I've used these talents to develop HPE 920: Sport First Aid and I'm developing a Physical Education curriculum development class.
