Bill Maxcy joined the PS 8 community in 1999. He taught fourth grade for three years followed by a year of computers and technology before turning his attention to matters of the magnet grant (funds awarded to PS 8 in 2004 to support its mission to offer opportunities for research, exploration, and design). In 2007, Bill became the school’s physical education teacher.
“The students here are city kids, so I am introducing new sports that they might not have tried out before,” he says. “They are getting fit while training their coordination skills.”
Bill’s interest in sports extends well beyond PS 8. He is an avid Yankees fan and a coach for his son’s baseball and basketball teams.
