Judging qualifications:
In seven years coaching at the HS level, I coached 20 plus students to Regional meets in all years consecutively. I have coached four State finalists in Prose Interpretation in those seven years. At the JH level, coaching four years, all students I coached performed in the finals round, accumulating four first, four second, and three third placings. Annually, I judge at invitational tournaments. In addition, I have directed One Act Play for ten years, advancing from the District level 8 out of 10 years, to Regional 3 of those years. I strongly believe in the benefits public speaking events have on student development. UIL is a natural extension of the classroom, teaching students to look at different life experiences through literature and expand knowledge about the world through current events.
