Khiet Chhu started his teaching career at Landmark High School during the 2009-2010 school year and got involved with coaching immediately. He has coached soccer, basketball, and tennis. As a tennis coach, he enjoys working with students who possess a range of experience, from seasoned players to beginners. The idea is to meet students at their instructional level and develop their skills while having fun. Tennis can be a lifelong sport if students learn the basic skills needed and learn to appreciate the game. Tennis was Khiet’s spring sport in high school, and he played recreationally throughout college. Khiet’s hoping to find a tiny tennis racquet for his nearly 1-year-old son.

I've been coaching the Landmark JV basketball team for four years. Prior to this, I coached varsity girls basketball at Rockport High School for 15 years. I have also coached boys varsity cross country, girls softball, and tennis.

As a coach I believe it is my job to mold and guide a group of individuals into a unified team—one that is committed to pursuing a common goal. I hope my players are willing to sacrifice for the good of the team and are committed to giving their best effort each and every day. Not an easy job, but I love the challenge of teaching them about the beauty of playing a team sport.

I have been the assistant varsity basketball coach for five years at Landmark School. In that time it's has been a pleasure to see these young student-athletes make the journey from rookies to first string varsity basketball players. It's amazing to watch their skills, both personal and on the court, grow and develop. The sports programs here at Landmark help both men and women develop their bodies as well as their ability to think and solve problems they face on the court. It's been an exciting thing to watch, and I am glad to have been part of this program for the last five years.

Dan Grimm

Dan Grimm's picture
During his third year as a teacher in the Mathematics Department, Dan took on the responsibility of serving as the High School Boys JV2 Basketball head coach. As a lifelong athlete who still competes in cycling and running competitions, Dan appreciates the lessons learned from sport along with the accompanied camaraderie folded into each lesson. With this in mind, Dan works to foster a supportive team environment that encourages players to realize life lessons through the platform of sport. Working with others, communicating effectively, and seeing a long-term goal through are all skills that students strive for in the classroom, but are sometimes better understood on the competitive field. Reflecting on the 2016-2017 squad's ability to engage in this process, coach Grimm commented, "They did just that."

This is my first year at Landmark and my first season coaching basketball. I teach in the Language Arts department at the high school. Previously, I taught and coached cross country and track and field at Flagstaff High School in Flagstaff, Ariz., where we were fortunate enough to win two state titles. I also briefly coached collegiately at Northern Arizona University as an assistant cross country coach. My philosophy with my athletes is to teach commitment and perseverance by being accountable and working to the best of one's capabilities.

Paul Howard is the Varsity Volleyball head coach at Landmark High School. He served for four years as an assistant coach during the program’s infancy and took over as varsity head coach in the fall of 2014. Paul’s coaching goals are multifaceted. Ultimately, he wants the girls to have a fun, positive experience that they will look back on fondly for years to come. As players on a team sport, he wants them to build lasting friendships and learn to work together toward a common goal. As young women, he wants them to be strong, healthy and confident—to build positive self-esteem. He strives to model appropriate sports competition that builds character through good sportsmanship and positive attitudes despite the outcome of the matches. Girls learn volleyball skills in a structured, safe environment that challenges them to reach their full potential.

When Paul isn’t coaching, he enjoys playing guitar, reading, gardening, and scuba diving. He is currently the assistant department head of the Early Literacy Department, and has taught at Landmark since 2007.

During the 2016 season the Varsity Volleyball team finished third in the Independent Girls Conference (IGC), and the program saw record enrollment, with 24 players across JV and Varsity. The Landmark volleyball program was founded in 2010 by Kristen Havey, Kim Hildebrandt, and Paul Howard.
