    Welcome to Coach Poetzsch's American History I and Civics and Economics Class. Though my name looks intimidating it is really quite simple. Poetzsch is actually pronounced like fetch but with a "p" instead of a "f" so "Petch".
       I am excited for my sixth year at Southern. GO PATRIOTS!! My previous teaching experience includes teaching A.P. and Honors U.S. History in Cabarrus County, NC. My previous career was managing sports leagues for the YMCA in the Raleigh and Charlotte area.  
       I attended N.C. State University and graduated with a B.S. in Sports Management. GO PACK!! My graduate degree is a graduate certificate from UNC Charlotte in Secondary Social Studies Education.
       I coach JV Baseball and have also worked with our Men's Basketball and Men's Soccer programs. I strive every day to help build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all of my students and athletes.
       Email is the best way to get in touch with me. I typically check it 3-4 times a day.  John_Poetzsch@abss.k12.nc.us
