My name is Brian Kessler, and I am currently teaching Sophomore PE and Lifetime Sports at Helena High School. I am very excited to be back in Helena and at my Alma mater, to teach these two courses that allow students to understand the movements of their bodies and how to make the right choices associated with ensuring a long and healthy life.
I am a lifelong Montanan, with my own history starting in Helena, MT. After graduating from Helena High in 2007, I attended Montana State University-Bozeman (Go Cats!!!). I graduated from MSU in May 2012 and was gratefully hired by the Livingston School District a month later.
While going to MSU I served two years as a Manager/Student Assistant for the Men’s Basketball Team, which was a great learning adventure for me. After that, I spent the next three years as an assistant basketball and track coach at Bozeman High.
While in Livingston, I spent two years teaching at Sleeping Giant Middle School. The first year, I taught 6th and 7th grade Health and Physical Education and then moved to 8th grade World History my last year there. I continued to coach in Livingston as well, with 7th and 8th grade football, Freshman Boys’ Basketball, and Pole Vault for the Track Team. I also served as the Activities Director for the Sleeping Giant Middle School Programs.
Currently at Helena High, I am trying to help out in as many ways possible, those ways include:
-Link Crew Coordinator
-Class Advisor for the Class of 2018
-MBI Staff Committee
-Assistant Boys’ Basketball coach, Assistant Boys’ Track Coach
-Home Visit participant
As we continue to encourage students to “Be Involved” I decided I needed to do my part as well!
I thoroughly enjoy teaching, and some of my hobbies include: hiking, exercise, coaching, doing things with my great friends, reading, and sports.
I am very excited to be back at Helena High and continue to help the Health and Physical Education program grow!
