ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE COACH
About Coach Puetz
Taige Puetz earned her bachelor’s degree in K-12 physical education/health from St. Cloud State University. While studying at SCSU Puetz was a member of the women’s soccer and softball teams and completed her student teaching in the St. Cloud School District.
Puetz was drawn to the Athlos model because of its incorporation of movement. In her own experiences as a child, physical education and recess were motivating factors to her learning. She found that the more she moved and interacted with others, the more successful she was.
“I truly believe if a child is moving consistently and having fun while engaging with others it is going to directly correlate with their success in the classroom,” Puetz said. “That is something I look forward to being a part of.”
Favorite Performance Character Trait: Grit
“While being an Athlete, all of my failures and faults pushed me to work harder and to push myself to get better,” she said. “I learned more from losses than I did wins. The gut-wrenching feeling I felt after a loss made me want to instantly work on what I needed to improve so I wouldn’t have to feel that same feeling again.”
