Welcome to Willis Junior High Spiritline!

  • The Willis Junior High Spiritline 2023-2024 season is quickly approaching! My name is Daniella Jagelka (Ms. J) and I am excited to be this year's Spiritline Coach.
    My philosophy is that the purpose of the WJHS Spiritline is to help cultivate spirit and pride in our school and foster an environment that develops lifelong character. I must first recognize that my team’s purpose is to help carry out Willis’ third core value, which is: “Willis is a place where we take pride in our school.” This includes taking any leadership opportunity on campus along with supporting our athletic teams. Second, I believe a coach must lead by example to help develop a team’s character. A good role model must display integrity, reliability, honesty, sincerity, and loyalty. My goal for my athletes is for them to develop a strong character reflecting these traits, develop meaningful relationships with their teammates and coach, and have fun along the way!
