What is your philosophy on tennis and coaching?
I believe that a coach's role is best served when he or she engages athletes through a critical praxis of problem-posing, dialogue, action and conscious reflection. "Committed acts of caring let all students know that the purpose of education is not to dominate, or prepare them to be dominators, but rather to create the conditions for freedom. Caring educators open the mind, allowing students to embrace a world of knowing that is always subject to change and challenge." -Bell Hooks, Teaching Community
