Hi, my name is Rex Williams, but most people call me Coach. I am a 1986 graduate of Haynesville High School way up in north Louisiana. While there, I accelled in athletics, winning a state football championship my junior year and held the school record in the shot put for track. I graduated as the schools first ever 4 year letterman within the same year. I was voted most athletic and graduated with a 3.02 GPA.
I went to Louisiana Tech for two years after graduation. I then transferred to Southern Arkansas University, home of the Muleriders. I was there for two more years before dropping out to help my dad in a family business. 16 years and many many substitute teaching hours later, I went back to SAU and graduated there in 2006. While I was working the family business, I went to ministry school and graduated from Word of Life School of Ministry in 1996.
It was during those many hours of substitute teaching for Haynesville High School that I fell in love with that profession. I especially loved subbing for coach Jackson's special ed class. That is where I knew what field I wanted to teach in. I then went online and got my masters from Grand Canyon University in Special Education.
This will be my second year in the St Tammany Parish School system. Last year I spent the year teaching at Pitcher Jr high and coaching the football team there as well as assisting with the Covington High wrestling wrestling team.
I am so excited to be teaching at Covington High School. I look forward to the upcoming year and hope it is filled with many successful moments.
