My Manifesto

My Manifesto

What are you going to school for? What's your major? Are you making enough money right now? The Noise is something you get used to hearing, but not something you should succumb to. If you know what you want, no one else's words matter. So learn, and help others learn. Your personal happiness is what comes foremost, and your goals will help you achieve your own definition of success.

Leader Interview

Kieth Ross

Para-educator and High School Football Coach

He educates students on academics, and educates his players on the game of football.

What type of route did this leader take?

  • It was straightforward

    "It was straightforward."

  • It was windy

    "It took a while to figure out."

  • It was circuitous

    "I tried everything."

Leader's Work Life

Work is close to home, so he has a short commute. At work, Ross has an assistant in his classroom to help his students. He often takes advantage of his assistant's help by studying the opposing team while at work, so he can prepare for his other job of being a HS football coach. His workdays can last as long as from 7 AM, to 10 PM when the game is finished.

Leader's Noise

His focus was so much on football while at college, so he became a teacher to continue his passion. The noise he dealt with was seeing his parents become teachers, so that helped him along in becoming a teacher and coach. Not to mention all the happenings of college life.
