Jerome currently serves on the Instructional Leadership Team and serves as a new teacher mentor at West Allis Central High School. With his background as an educator at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, this has led to an ability to tier instruction to the needs and development of his students as well as players. He learned that athletes often need scaffolds that allow them to access the next level of their performance just like students do.
