About Jonathan

I have considerable experience as an educator, sports trainer, player as well as a coach. I have an MED with a specialization in ELL education. I also played professional soccer and tennis. I coached 10 championship tennis teams, and four championship soccer teams as well as coached all levels including college and amateur teams in both sports. I have experience tutoring ELL students and have participated in an IEP team approach. I believe my proven talent and abilities to build successful and skillful teams to be aligned with the requirements for this position. I am interested in this position because it gives me a chance to teach and coach, both of which are very fulfilling. The values observed in the mission statement and institution history inspire my enthusiasm and align with my own as an educator.

It would be a fulfillment of my goal of contributing to a professional learning community where the focus would be geared to what’s best for the student. I strive continually to be the best I can be at what I do, and expect excellence from myself and believe in others to reach their own level of that type of endeavor.My daily life is one of growth and positive change towards being excellent physically, intellectually and most of all spiritually.

Soccer

I am currently accepted in Ohio Universities Master’s Degree in Soccer coaching uniquely the only one of its kind in the world. I will begin this summer after I finish my current discipline Masters in Education.
I have extensive experience coaching soccer teams at the college, high school, and middle school level, as well as travel teams both boys’ and girls’ U9-U14, select, tournament, adult amateur, and intramural teams. I have administered tournaments, camps, and promotional soccer demonstration programs. I have conducted and directed five-a-side, indoor and outdoor tournaments, futsal leagues, and indoor 3v3 leagues. In 1989, I attended by invitation the world-renowned international soccer academy, Ajax Soccer Academy, in the Netherlands. I was mentored there by Weil Coerver, an internationally recognized leader in youth soccer development.
As a sports educator, I’ve learned that there is no substitute for one on one mentorship. I have traveled internationally to be mentored by exceptional, world-class soccer players and coaches including national level and World Cup team coaches. In 1991, I was coached by Gordon Banks of Manchester United in England. I trained as a coach at Ajax Youth Soccer Academy in the Netherlands. Among my mentors I include Han Scharne, Bayern Munich at Beltsville Boys FC from 1968 to 70, in 1969 Michael Glouseter of the US National Team and the 1972 US Olympic Select Team East U.S. region, who was a mentor and teammate.
Mentored by several world-class coaches and players, I have, since 1981, directed Morningstar Soccer Academy which is modeled after Ajax Soccer Academy and the FFF (Federation of French Football Academies) in Leon, France. Morningstar Soccer Technical Development is systematically modeled after current Dutch, Brazilian and German coaching techniques. I’ve also developed an original system of techniques and routines for juggling, finishing, shooting, dribbling, and passing. I align with European philosophies on soccer training that center individualized attention to players. This means that in addition to coaching tactical understanding of team-play, my program will emphasize intensive individualized work to teach technical mastery and control over the ball. “Individualized technically obsessive football education” develops precise and skillful players in addition to the developing the team. I specialize in finishing and scoring, training players within the framework of attack futbol. I have studied the science of scoring and goal-keeping and have developed a system for coaching individual technical skills such as juggling and passing.
The following teams are teams I’ve coached as the head coach and the season outcomes while I was head coach. I’ve coached 5 teams to national qualifying 3v3 championships, and led many other teams to championships and undefeated seasons:
