I'm Jake Ganus and I'm a business teacher and football coach here at Thompson High School. I'm entering year five as a teacher and I have been blessed to be at Thompson all five years. Our football team has been to three straight State Championships, and we have won the last two. I graduated from Chelsea High School in 2012 and attended UAB where I majored and received a degree in Business Management and played football for three years. In December 2014, UAB shut down their football program and I transferred to The University of Georgia. I was lucky enough to finish out my college football career there and had a short stint with the Minnesota Vikings after that. I got straight into coaching at UAB in the spring of 2017. Shortly after that I was blessed with the opportunity to become a teacher/coach at Thompson.
I currently am the Instructor for Thompson's "Ready to Work" program. This will be my first year with RTW and I'm excited to get that class going and to give our kids some opportunities to learn about themselves and provide them with opportunities to expand their personal network. I also teach Entrepreneurship. Our focus in Entrepreneurship is the THS School Store. This a completely student run store located near the entrance of our school. We sell anything from school supplies to Thompson apparel and everything in between. The kids do all the work. They manage the money, buy the supplies, keep track of inventory, manage hours and work schedules, everything a real business owner would do.
We truly have the best admin and faculty around and it's a joy to come to work every day. If you need me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
God Bless and Go Warriors!
