Physical Education

Devron Bostick

For me teaching is not just about passing my knowledge to the students, but providing the tools that help them build their own thoughts. Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. I have an Associates of Arts degree from Southwestern Illinois Junior College and a Bachelor’s degree in Business and Marketing Education from the University of Minnesota. 

 

This is my second year as the physical education teacher.  I am also the school's basketball coach. I try to teach the kids the value of teamwork and understanding of the game.  I've played on all different levels of basketball. In high school, we won back-to-back state championships at St. Catherine's High School. In junior college, I won Athlete of the Year in 2007-08. In 2008-10, I played basketball at the University of Minnesota under the coaching of Tubby Smith.  We went to the NCAA tournament both years. From 2010-12, I played professionally over in Europe for a team in Cyprus called Omonoia.
