“Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.” – Vince Lombardi

Coach Threadgill, a new face here at Ponder High School, is excited to teach (as well as coach) our students here, and expects big things! He has been teaching in education for little over 5 years now, where he was at Brewer High School, located in White Settlement, TX, before coming here. His family, however, who are all located in Seattle, consists of 4 sisters and one brother. Out of all of his siblings, he’s the eldest one! Though despite his move, he seems to be settling in well, and he’s just getting started!

When it comes to his job, his philosophy in education is to let the students take responsibility for their learning. If a student wants to learn, they must put in the effort themselves. One of Coach Threadgill’s favorite things that comes with his occupation is to see the smiling faces of his students.

Thinking towards the future, he cannot wait for football season to officially begin and travel to new places with the team. Some of the things that he believes sets him out from the rest, or his “superpower,” is that he’s very strong. He also has the wonderful ability to make others smile, and it’s very contagious!

So if you manage to see Coach Threadgill in the halls, be sure to send him a smile and give him a big welcome to Ponder!
