Bio

My name is Lucy Bengson. My mom named me after the famous show “I love Lucy”. I come from a sport oriented family. My Dad and my Aunt, competed in the summer Olympics in Helsinki representing my home country, Venezuela. My Dad ran the 110 meter hurdles, and my Aunt threw the Javelin. Years later, both of them represented Venezuela in the PanAmerican games in basketball. Both, my Dad and my Aunt, have been inducted into the Venezuelan Sports Hall of Fame. My siblings have also won trophies and medals in several sports, such as track and field, motocross, tennis, and BMX. I played several sports when I was very young, such as softball, swimming, and soccer. I even tried ballet for a year, but the coach told my mom that I was too tall for it. I then started playing basketball when I was nine years old. I continued playing this sport until I graduated from Universidad de Carabobo, in Chemical Engineering. I represented the national team (in Venezuela) for one year. After that, I joined a volleyball club for female engineers in my home state, and I continuously played for another 15 years. When I am not involved with school, I keep myself busy with one of my preferred hobbies, art. I have taken workshops from well known artists throughout the country. I have learned how to paint in several media, and have entered my pieces in a number of art shows in the valley. I also enjoy knitting and crocheting. This is my second year as a volleyball coach, but my first at Millennium. I decided to coach, because I feel the need to give back, and transfer my knowledge and experience to my players. I will also try to become an assistant coach in basketball soon. My goals as a coach are to keep my players motivated, to build confidence in themselves, to support my players during games and at practice. I want to be approachable and fair with my players, and to instill a sense of pride and discipline in them. I want to be there for them, and to be a good role model. I believe that my athletic program can contribute to the positive growth and development of my players, by my modeling the following: Being on time for practice and games Noticing, commending, and rewarding my players for positive behaviors and outcomes Being respectful to all people that interact with me Promoting a non-threatening environment by keeping the doors of communication open, and addressing the student's flaws and needs with respect and dignity
