Harleton High School welcomed new teacher and softball coach Kelly Fay this year.  In addition to coaching, Fay enjoys playing golf and fishing. His days will be getting much longer as the official kickoff to softball season is this afternoon. Let’s find out what goes on behind the scenes of a teacher/coach on a typical day.

5:10 am- Coach Fay typically wakes up and heads straight to the bathroom to brush his teeth.

“On a normal day, I leave for school at around 5:55 and automatically put on some music as soon as I get in my room.” Stated Coach.

9:36-10:06– During this time his students have break, so Fay normally grades papers, checks on emails or runs tutorials for those behind in his class.

“A normal class period is very instructional. The kids work and communicate,” replied Fay.

Coach Fay puts equal emphasis in the classroom and on the field.

12:36- Coach Fay often times eats lunch in his classroom while watching fishing videos or heads to the local taco shop to enjoy a short but delectable meal.

“Straight after school, I make my way up to softball field or I go home and fish.”

Fay is assisted by second year coach Shelby Phillips. She is looking forward to this season.

“Working with Coach Fay has been awesome. He’s been coaching longer than I have so I’ve been learning alot from him,” stated assistant softball coach, Shelby Phillips.

5:00 pm- He typically returns back to his humble abode. First and foremost, he kisses his wife hello then proceeds to pet his dogs.

7:00- Fay’s family eats dinner; some of his favorite things to cook are anything that involves a grill.

“Lately, to spend time together my family has been building a fire in the fireplace and watching our favorite TV series,” Kelly commented.

11-11:30- Coach Fay makes his way to bed and depending on the day he had he either goes straight to bed or stays up late like a night owl.
