James Hodge

LBMS Head Football Coach

Payton Tillman

LBMS Head Coach: Volleyball, Basketball, Softball

I have had the privilege to help students unlock their personal potential as athletes and young adults going on year number six. Within those six years, I have made three high school state championship appearances as well as clinched one middle school conference championship. As a full-time job as a teacher, I get to touch many lives of students not only in the classroom but also as a softball, basketball, and volleyball coach. My players educational and athletic experience has unparalleled longevity and I want to be just a small part of making it a positive one.

Chase Curlee

LBMS Boys Basketball Coach

 My guiding philosophy is to show up with commitment and leave with nothing left to give. I required this of my players, my coaching staff, and myself. We have the privilege to coach the best STUDENT athletes at Long Beach School District and I take pride in working with them to develop all aspects of the game of basketball, their academics, and most importantly their character.

Nancy Miller

LBMS Dance Coach

 I grew up cheering for Long Beach School District for my entire academic career. I was also part a cheerleader for the Back-to-Back State Champion LBHS Cheer Team both years. Go Bearcats!! I also grew up dancing at a local dance studio and have been trained in multiple types of dance such as ballet, pointe, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, and hip hop. I am now a dance teacher at that dance studio, and I’m excited to bring my training expertise to the dance team. I love game days, pep rallies, and performances, and some of my fondest childhood and school memories center around them. It’s an honor to be a part of the dance team!

Chelsea Brisolara

LBMS Cheer Coach

My name is Chelsa Brisolara-Huguet, but my cheerleaders call me Mrs. B. I am the head coach for the Long Beach Middle School Cheerleading Team. I grew up and cheered throughout my entire academic career here at Long Beach. It is an honor to be able to coach and pour into a program that gave me so much growing up! My favorite memories from cheering include Friday night football games, homecoming week and of course, competing and winning a state championship! Being a cheerleader taught me responsibility, positivity and teamwork and I work hard to instill those same values into the cheer team today!
