The Norwin School District named Kaitlyn Fung as the Varsity Cheerleading Head Coach on May 18, 2020. Fung provided a brief overview of her background and introduction:
Hello! My name is Kaitlyn Fung, and I’m honored to be the Head Cheerleading Coach for Norwin. I’m excited to share my love for cheerleading, dancing, and inspiring each individual to grow to achieve their goals throughout our upcoming season. No matter if we are on the sidelines, in the bleachers, or on the mat, we have the opportunity each day to build our school spirit while representing Norwin.
A few things I’d like for you to know about me include my love of spending time with my family, my passion for teaching, and my joy for coaching. I am blessed to be part of a big family who all enjoy spending time together often. I have a brother, Jason, a sister, Krystal, and my sister-in-law Annie. We enjoy Steeler Sundays together and spending time with one another to celebrate our special days throughout the year.
I teach 4th Grade at Stewartsville Elementary, and I feel blessed to be part of our Stewartsville family! Ever since I was little, I had a passion for teaching. I spent time with my mom in her 1st Grade classroom often! I would pretend I was the teacher and help her with small jobs. One of my favorite things to do was find out who her new students were each year, and that remains true still today. I love getting to know my students!
I coached cheerleading at Indiana School District for five years and worked with children teaching instructional cheerleading camps to students in elementary school through the collegiate level during my summers. I also love dancing! I trained through Ken and Jean’s Dance studio, twirled with the Golden Triangles, was part of my dance team at IUP, and I enjoy teaching for the Golden Triangles Performance Ensemble. I have always enjoyed coaching and inspiring my student athletes to become stronger versions of themselves each day!
I look forward to growing together this season because TOGETHER we can achieve anything!
Coach Fung will be hosting a zoom meeting for any student interested in participating in the program in the near future. Information will be shared through the booster organization and the school website regarding meeting details.
