Spanish teacher and basketball coach for 16 years at the NBMS. She has been teaching a total of 24 years having previously taught at Madison High school for eight years. “I do like the high pace game,

but I enjoy teaching,” LaGuar- dia said “I enjoy teaching sports and language. I think I’ve been blessed with the gift of teach- ing because I can connect with people.” Originally

from Kingsport, attended Mars

Hill University, earning her de- gree in Spanish and international business. Then attended UNC- Asheville to receive her teach- ing license. She chose Spanish as her field because of her love for languages, culture, and travel.

in teaching students strong hab- its, and supporting them and who they are. “I think I help students get to

know who they are in our global world. To find out who they are and also have respect for other

people. Period,” LaGuardia said. “Doesn’t matter if it’s political, religious, or racial. I think a huge part of my job is to promote re- spect and love for others.” This system of support and teaching plays into her coaching

style. She believes in helping the girls not only learn teamwork and working hard, but knowing who they are and their best selves. “As we create habits in the

classroom about doing our best, that’s really what it’s about. Like

you could do your best to some- body else’s who is a lot better,” LaGuardia said, “but whatever my best is, is okay. It’s about cre- ating habits of success as a foun- dation for the main challenges they’ll get in life.”
