Hello, my name is Michael Manning. I am very excited to be a part of Kountze ISD. I will be coaching football, girls basketball, power lifting, and track. My teaching assignment will be the district's special education behavioral specialist. I am assigned to the Intermediate campus, however I will be on each campus at one time or another. I grew up in the Ft. Worth area. I went to Boswell High School and then graduated from Tarleton State University. I participated in sports, band, choir, and drama. My main past time now is lifting weights. I have been a personal trainer for the past 25 years. I have been married to my wife Christy for 25 years. We have three children. My daughter, Brittney 23, my son Michael 21, and my son Dakota 18. My granddaughter is Madeline who will be one on September 16.
