About Jennifer Knight
Lubbock TOT Director Jennifer Knight can be reached at 806-370-9021. Jennifer graduated from the
University of North Texas with a degree in Early Childhood Education in 2002.
She has nine years of teaching experience in grades per-kindergarten to first
grade. She and her husband have two beautiful daughters, Rylie and Haylie. After
watching her oldest daughter go through the TOT program in 2010 she fell in
love with the Teams of Tomorrow program. She was amazed at everything her
daughter learned and how much her self-confidence grew while she was a part of
the TOT team. When her husband was relocated to Lubbock in 2011, she decided to
step out of the classroom to work with the Teams of Tomorrow program in
Lubbock. She truly enjoys working with young children and watching them grow
and learn. As an educator, she understands the importance of movement in
development and how it enhances the academic growth of students. Jennifer loves
that the TOT program provides a unique and fun atmosphere to teach basketball skills,
academic concepts, gross and fine motor development, coordination skills,
self-control and team-work. TOT was created by educators and is based on sound
teaching principles and extensive brain research showing the many connections
between physical activity and academic readiness.
The highlight of the Lubbock TOT program is the half time performance. TOT Lubbock Superstars have performed at Texas Tech, Lubbock Christian University, and some local high schools. The TOT Superstars really shine and their confidence soars when they fill the court, ready to show off their ball handling skills at the halftime show.
The preschool TOT program in the Lubbock area runs from September through May. In addition to the halftime performance, our preschoolers end the year with our SHINE TIME CELEBRATION! Our elementary programs run September to January. Our Tiny TOT elementary program ends the season with a CELEBRATION TIME and our Basic TOT elementary students end the season with a SKILLS TOURNAMENT. Every child shines as they show off their skills to family and friends! You will be amazed at what your child will learn in TOT!
