Fuller to teach special education, coach baseball

Eli McDaniel | Social media editor

New WHS special education teacher Lance Fuller is already playing many roles in the district. In addition to teaching, he is the head baseball coach and assistant junior high football coach.

Fuller, who grew up in Ottawa, attended Kansas City Kansas Community College for two years, Barton Community College for one year and got his Undergraduate at Fort Hays State University. 

During his years at KCK, he played baseball for 1 year (Outfield). He decided he wanted to coach when he was still in high school and knew he wanted to be “involved in sports.” 

He spent a few years looking for a P.E. job, and during that time he was hired as a Para. It was during his time as a para that he realized he wanted to teach in the special needs program. 

Fuller is entering his eighth year of teaching, coaching baseball each of those eight years. He taught for three years at Pratt, three years in Ottawa and one in El Dorado. 

When he isn’t teaching he spends his time with his family, and during the winter season he officiates basketball.
