Jack W. Sager, MS, ATC
I am currently a second year doctoral student in the Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) program at West Virginia
University (WVU). My cognate is Sport and Exercise Psychology. I plan on completing my comprehensive exams in
August 2005 and proposing my dissertation shortly there after. I earned a BS in Physical Education from Brockport State in
1990 and a MS in Athletic Training from Indiana State in 1992.I have been a Certified Athletic Training (ATC) for 15 years and
am trained to recognize, evaluate and treat athletic injuries, complete physical rehabilitation with patients, and consult on the prevention of injuries. Prior to residing in West Virginia, I was employed for six years at Canterbury School, a boarding school in Connecticut. During my first four years, I taught physical education and science, served as the head ATC, and served as a dormitory parent and advisor for high school aged students. After resigning as the head ATC, I coached the school's track and field and cross-country teams. I was born and raised in the country, about 25 miles from Rochester, New York. I enjoy most outdoor activities, including camping, fishing, hiking, XC and downhill skiing, as well as reading novels and writing.
