Head Tennis Coach, Ernie Manning
I graduated from Bellarmine and have a masters from UPS.
I taught in the University Place school district at various positions until 2000.
I came to Steilacoom schools in 2003 as a last minute replacement PE/Health teacher. This led to being asked by then computer teacher and head tennis coach Kurt Bethman, to help him with the tennis team in the spring of 2004. Even though the teaching position was only for the year I was lucky enough to keep my coaching duties.
Mr. Bethman, who was not only the head coach but also a highly ranked player in the entire NW, has been great in helping me to learn the game and it's nuances. Without him I would not have learned to appreciate and love the game.
Important too it has been the supportive school staff, AD's, and kids that make coaching something I love to do, in a place I love to be.
