My most recent experience has been as Head Boys Basketball Coach and teaching Physical Education and Health at Breckenridge High School. In the classroom my primary responsibility has th th been teaching 9 and 10 grade Health and Physical Education as well as a number of elective physical education courses. I am writing this letter in order to express my interest in the Health and Physical Education Position as well as the Head Boy’s Basketball and Assistant Football Coaching positions at Hastings High School. I am responsible for the boys’ basketball program from grades K-12 including all traveling seasons and camps. While our philosophy is based on the gym rat mindset we also expect our athletes to be multisport participants. This season, of the 39 boys in our program, 38 participate in a minimum of 2 sports and many are 3 sport athletes. We have gone from 4 and 5 win seasons to averaging 20 wins per season over the past 5 years Over the past 8 years my assistants and I have built our basketball program from the ground up. Regardless of where I coach, I believe strongly in incorporating youth basketball into our program. We have developed our Whiz Kids program for grades K-2, our FUNdamental league for grades 3-6, and our Saturday Skillz program for grades 3-6. We have also developed the vision and backbone for our Park and Recreation and traveling programs that are offered to boys in grades 3-8 at various times of the year. Camps, leagues and summer events are a great way to get young people connected with our program. These programs are an opportunity to show others what our program is about as well as help raise the level of basketball skills in our program. My first 4 years as a teacher and coach were spent at Osseo High School. While at Osseo I was an assistant basketball and football coach and was Head Track coach for 2 years. My last year at Osseo we were 31-1 and were the class 4A state champions in basketball. This experience gave me an excellent understanding of big school dynamics such as team selection and hiring of coaches. As a teacher I spent 2 years as our Department Chairperson and was responsible for scheduling, budget management and was a member of our Building Leadership Team. While my experiences at Breckenridge have been tremendous, I am ready for a new challenge. I feel confident that my skills would be an asset to Hastings High School both in the classroom and on the court. Thank-you for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Dean Haugo Curriculum Development This is a comprehensive Curriculum that I helped develop for our Health Education Department in 2009. It was developed in alignment with our Health Standards Breckenridge High School Health Curriculum Guide 2009 Breckenridge Health Requirements: 9th Grade: 1 credit 10th Grade: 1 credit Quality Health Education: Quality Health education in schools includes a documented, planned and sequential curriculum which addresses the physical, mental, emotional and social aspects of Health. The curriculum enables students to develop and demonstrate increasingly sophisticated health-related knowledge and skills. National Health Standards: The National Health Education Standards reflect the current science and best practices in school health education. These standards were developed by a committee of nationally recognized health educators with input from thousands of reviewers including health education professionals, parents, and community members. Rationale for Health Education: Health education is essential to the health and learning of children and adolescents. Researchers indicate that health education in schools represents an effective way to enable students to develop the knowledge and skills that they need to avoid health risks and enhance both their health and academic achievement. National Health Education Standards Standard 1: Students will comprehend concepts related to health promotion and disease prevention. 1.1 Analyze how behavior can impact health maintenance and disease prevention. 1.2 Describe the interrelationships of mental, emotional, social, and physical health throughout adulthood. 1.3 Explain the impact of personal health behaviors on the functioning of body systems. Curriculum This is an example of a potential set of Business Courses that I feel would make up a solid set of course offerings.

Reflection and self-evaluation is an important part of the development process. Considering my practicum experience has been on the job I am going to reflect on my first two years of teaching Business Education. My first observation is that year 2 is significantly easier than year 1 from all standpoints. Having taught Physical Education and Health for 14 years prior to moving to the Business Department prepared in terms of classroom management but that is about it. The daily and weekly planning in business courses is a very different experience and one that has become much easier. Coming in to this school year I set a number of goals. My first goal was to improve my understanding of each of the subjects that I teach. I feel I have made some big strides in this area. When you are not confident in what you are teaching the students will pick up on it very quickly. In looking at the comprehension level of my Accounting students this year compared to last it isn’t even a comparison. I believe this is directly related to my increased comfort with the concepts. Another goal I had was to better use the technology and improve the technology in my classroom. So far we have added a smart board and have begun to utilize our school website for daily assignments. The implementing of the smart board has been absolutely wonderful for all classes but especially computer applications. A third goal of mine this year is to do a better job of making modifications for those students that are in need. I have been working with our special education staff on ideas that they have and so far I think it is going pretty well. Looking to the future I feel my next step is to take a close look at our present curriculum. I feel the courses we are offering are good but would like to look at adding a number of elective courses. The first step in the process is to visit with neighboring business educators to find out what they are doing in their schools. At this point we only offer Accounting I and I think we could definitely offer Advanced Accounting. I would also like to offer an Advanced Computer course that would touch on web development as well as advanced office concepts and some film editing work. My view on the world of education has been shaped by my experiences as a student as a teacher. I grew up in a small community where my graduating class was 45. From their I went to Concordia College where I spent my first four years focusing on a major in Business Administration. During the Education Philosophy spring of my senior year I had a change of heart and after spending a couple of months working in Business I knew it was time to go back and get my education degree. Through all of this I learned a tremendous lesson about myself and my belief system which is I needed to do something for a living that didn’t feel like work. Even though teaching and coaching has at times been challenging it has never felt like a chore or work. While I still truly enjoy teaching and coaching I feel it is time to pursue another interest which is the world of leadership. As a teacher I have long believed that we can make a positive difference in many ways. My objective each and every day has been creating an environment that students want to be a part of. I am not saying that every day is going to be a party but am saying that I want students to feel comfortable in my room. This environment is created by treating each and every student as the most important student in the room at each moment. The environment will be one where all learners can feel confident and challenged. When I look at the administrators and leaders I have worked for rarely have my impressions of their success or failure had much to do with their technical competency. That isn’t to say the knowledge of the inner workings of one’s job aren’t important but I think there is a component has more impact on the operation of an organization. The term Leadership is one that is thrown around very loosely in my opinion but is the key component to an organization’s success or failure. What makes a leader sound is often times a matter opinion. In my personal experiences the key component to successful leader is the ability to communicate. With successful communication the organization will have clear goals and an understanding of how to achieve them. Solid communicators have the ability to resolve conflict within the organization and keep everyone working towards the same objective. People want to understand how they fit into an organization and how their role affects the big picture. Solid leaders will clearly communicate roles with each member of an organization and work hard to make sure that each person understands the value of their role regardless of their rank within the organization.
