worth wanting is worth working for.” Today, Sattele holds his former basketball coach, Bob Schlosser, next to his father as a mentor. Schlosser’s influence on players has been significant, said Sattele. “If you were to look at the success everybody in that program has had once they’ve graduated, it’s mind bog-gling—the amount of head coaches, the lead-ers in education, sales people who are break-ing sales records,” he said.

Sattele knew he wanted to be a coach someday and realized coaching and teaching “parallel one another.” He had a hard time getting into the Education Department but, former chair Dr. Terry Blue, and now-retired

academic advisor Carole Isaak, gave him en-couragement and support. “They got hold of me and said if this is what you want, here’s your blueprint, and they made sure I stuck with it,” he said.

Sattele has since earned two master’s de-grees from Wilkes College in educational as-sessment and in educational leadership with a principal’s certification. “It really shows

that Elizabethtown built a solid foundation,” he said.

He’s particularly grateful for the val-ues he learned. “It’s important to be selfless, which Elizabethtown taught me,” he said. “It’s important to dedicate yourself, which Elizabethtown taught me. And it’s also impor-tant to challenge yourself. I feel a degree from Elizabethtown goes a little bit further because they instill those values in you.”

Sattele challenges his sixth-grade ge-ography students in a way that helps them succeed, first empowering them to believe in themselves, the way he was helped to believe in himself. “I want them to feel safe and feel

challenged,” he explained. “If you can make them feel safe, then the risks they’re willing to take by … asking questions and diving into in-formation, makes the reward that much bet-ter. You don’t know how kids are coming to you, but when you’re able to bring them into the classroom, and they feel comfortable and they feel safe with you, the amount of success kids have is unbelievable.”
