Coach Steffens Joins Florence Elementary

My name is Douglas Steffens and I am so excited to be the new PE teacher here at Florence! I graduated with my degree in Physical Education from East Carolina University (GO PIRATES) and moved here to Greensboro with my wonderful wife Michelle 3 years ago. I have previously worked here in Guilford County as a teacher assistant for one year at CJ Education Center in Jamestown before spending the past year and a half working as a PE teacher at Parkwood Elementary School in Durham. If I am not teaching I am keeping busy by coaching various sports. I am currently in my third year of coaching a youth basketball team at Lindley Recreation, and also will begin my third year as well this spring coaching Girls track and field at Mendenhall Middle School. If I am not teaching or coaching you can find me outside either playing golf or tennis or hanging out with friends and family. I am so excited to get to know the staff, students and families here at Florence and am already so proud to call myself a Cowboy!
