Cameron Culbreth Sims is Playworks Durham Coach of the Month for October. Coach Cameron is the program coordinator at Hope Valley Elementary School and is in her second year as a Playworks program coordinator. She runs an excellent program with motivated Junior Coaches and popular and engaging “games of the week,” all while getting teachers involved through 4-square and soccer.
In addition to her high quality program, Coach Cameron continues to advocate for Playworks. She made a successful appeal to the Hope Valley PTA, which resulted in Playworks becoming one of the organization’s main fundraising projects for the year. When Durham Public Schools Cable Chanel 4 came to tape her program, she spoke eloquently and enthusiastically. Finally, she supported the anti-bullying movement by having students and staff at Hope Valley make a banner standing up against bullying for Unity Day (10/10/2012).
This month we give a huge “Fireworks Clap” to our Playworks Durham Coach of the Month Cameron Culbreth Sims!
Get to Know Coach Cameron:
Favorite Game: Team to 2-square (it’s like volleyball but easier)!
Favorite Cheer: The Chicken Cheer
Favorite thing about Durham: I like the mix of urban, suburban, and rural communities that coexist here. I can experience all the benefits of downtown, go enjoy a meal at a neighborhood restaurant, and then take a drive through gorgeous farmlands — all without leaving Durham!
If you could have any super power what would it be and why? The ability to freeze time around me, that way I could take as long as I needed doing things and still not feel like I “wasted” time.
