Q&A: Glen Burnie High School Teacher Nick Good-Malloy

The Baltimore Sun reported Thursday that Nick Good-Malloy accepted an offer to coach football at Annapolis High School, his alma mater. Patch caught up with him that afternoon to talk about his time at Glen Burnie.

Patch caught up with Nick Good-Malloy after the physical education teacher and football coach announced he accepted an offer to coach at Annapolis High School, the school he graduated from in 2001.

According to The Baltimore Sun, Annapolis offered the position to Good-Malloy on Tuesday and told Glen Burnie he had accepted the offer.

We stopped the Hanover resident to ask Five Questions about his time at Glen Burnie.

Glen Burnie Patch: How long have you been in education?
Nick Good-Malloy: Since 2006. I taught two years at Annapolis High School, two years at Salisbury University and I've been here two years.

Glen Burnie Patch: Why did you choose to become a teacher?
Good-Malloy: Both of my parents are college professors, so that played a role. Plus I always wanted to coach at a high school level and that goes hand-in-hand with education and teaching.

Glen Burnie Patch: Why did you want to coach and teach at the high school level?
Good-Malloy: At every age, young people are [impressionable], but there's a big difference between high school and college [students]. Young people in college are really at a different place than young people in high school. I wanted to be able to show them there's more that can come after high school ... I like seeing kids enjoy high school. It's a great time of life so they should have fun and do as much as they can to get involved.

Glen Burnie Patch: Where did you go to high school? College? What degree do you hold?
Good-Malloy: I went to Annapolis High School. For college I went to Salisbury University [and received a degree in] physical education. I also have a master's degree in post-secondary education from Salisbury.

Glen Burnie Patch: When you have free time, what do you like to do?
Good-Malloy: I like spending time with my family and friends. I have a 7-month-old son so that takes up a lot of time and energy—and brings a lot of enjoyment.
