My name is Robert A. Bruce, and I grew up in Indiana and played football, basketball and track. I graduated from Lafayette Jefferson high school. I served an LDS missin to Mexico for 2 years then attended BYU graduating with a M.S. in Exercise Science. I have taught 25 years and coached for 29 years. I have been married 32 years.  We have two children - Nate 30 and Skye 24 and two grandsons Teague who is 5 and Damon who is 2 years old and one granddaughter Eiley Elizabeth who is one month old.  I am looking forward to these last few years before retirement I hope to have a positive influence on the students I teach and coach.
