Nicholas Caregnato is the new Sports Medicine teacher at Leesville Road High School. This is his first year of teaching. He is from New Jersey.
Thankfully he was able to step in as the new sports medicine teacher after the last teacher ended up leaving mid-school year.
He went to Cumberland Community College in New Jersey for 2 years and then he transferred to North Carolina Central. He finished at Central and earned his Master’s Degree.
“I majored in Behavior and Social Science in undergrad and Physical Education and Recreation Administration in grad school,” said Caregnato over email.
He also played baseball while he was in college. “I played high school baseball back in NJ. Won a State Championship my senior year. I played at Cumberland County College and then I got a baseball scholarship to play at NC Central,” said Caregnato over email.
“I started teaching to educate people in sports medicine and physical activities and increase this field in subject, and the awareness and importance of physical activities,” said Caregnato.
Caregnato came to LRHS because of the opportunity and the community that comes with it.
Even though he hasn’t been here for long, he is getting along well with other teachers. “We are all on the same page and have the same goal: to educate and promote physical activity to our students,” said Caregnato over email.
His favorite thing about this school year so far is meeting new people.
“Mr. Caregnato is a great teacher. He stepped into the position mid-year and has engaging lessons and assignments that me and my classmates enjoy,” said Jordan Pinder, sophomore, who takes Caregnato class, over text.
