After high school, he graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) with a bachelor’s degree in health and physical education. He is currently in his last semester at Western Governors University for his master’s degree in special education.
“I enjoy the relationships I build with my students and having the summers off is a great bonus too,” claimed Winesburgh.
Like many, Winesburgh enjoys spending time with his family. He has a wife and three children named Smith, Brynlie, and Kalel. His wife shares the same ambition of helping children learn, as she is also a teacher. His three children attend Hixson Elementary, which is where his wife teaches.
Winesburgh, as well as his family, enjoys wrestling. He is an assistant wrestling coach at Hixson High School, the head wrestling coach at Hixson Middle School, and the head wrestling coach of a kids club wrestling team. His family life revolves around wrestling from November until February, as his kids are also active participants.
Winesburgh encourages all students to try and perform their best no matter what. He also hopes to get to know Central and all of its students, as well as its faculty.
As for advice to the students, Winesburgh said, “Just remember in life that tough times don’t last, but tough people do!”
