Welcome to Health at Baines taught by Coach Yirgu. This is my 9th year teaching Health classes and 13th year as a teacher in total, all of which have been here at Baines.
In this class, we will be covering many different topics about health and safety such as Physical health, Mental/Emotional health, Social health, nutrition, substance use & addiction, and more. If any of you ever have a question, you can always send me a message in schoology or through traditional email. My email and work extension are listed on my course information sheet that will be in the parent resources and course information folders.
I am a graduate of the University of Houston where i majored in education and in addition to teaching 7th grade Health I am also a member of the coaching staff for both Football & Tennis.
I have been the head tennis coach since coming to Baines, guiding the teams to several division titles & two district titles with the boys and girls teams over the years. I have also been coaching football since the 2010 school year, wining a district title along with multiple division titles and now I coach the 8th grade B team offense and special teams.
I look forward to a great & successful semester with you all.
