 Mr. Bomholt is a teacher at Southwestern. He has been teaching geometry for 45 years and has taught at 9 different schools throughout his career.  I asked him why he became a teacher and he said, “In the old days, you had to teach in order to coach.” He’s been the head coach for basketball for 38 years.  I asked him what he plans after retiring this year he said, “ Hopefully, I will still coach and enjoy retirement.”

I was wondering why the boys have to wear the beanie when they’re outside?
