Post Middle School

Teacher of the Week | Apr. 24-28 |

 My name is Coach Ladd and my birthday is December 19, 1981. I teach 7th grade Science and also coach the Jr. High and High School for Post. I graduated from Columbia Southern University with my Bachelors in Business Administration. I spent the past 10 years teaching and training United States Army Soldiers before they were deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan. This has been my first year teaching in the classroom with students and it has been a great experience. I have learned a lot from these Students and my favorite thing has been trying to figure them out. Everyday I will have at lease one student per class that will ask a question that has nothing to do with the topic we are one but has somehow made a connection to the subject. Learning how everyone's brains are so different and trying to stay ahead of the Students thought process has taught me alot.

My family is both my hobby and my everything. My wife Cammye keeps me in-line and most of the time considers me the biggest kids of our 4. I have 2 daughters and 2 sons. Aubrie who is 16, and Berklie 10. Then I have my two sons, Garret who is 14, and Brycen who is 12. A fun fact about me is that I have nicknames for my wife and kids as I do for most of the other Students I interact with. I think it makes them feel that I am more approachable since I have that connection with them.

My plans after retirement is to never stop. Life is way too short and people take too much time for granted and don't enjoy the little things. My family will always be my first but all my Students will always come in a close second. I leave them everyday with hopefully some wisdom, more laughter, and a better outlook on what to look forward too. As I always tell them, " Do you Boo Boo, the rest will work itself out."
