Lee HS coach not quite ready to hang up cleats

Doug Perry

It’s been 35 years since Coach Doug Perry first joined Team HISD as a physical education teacher at Eliot Elementary School, but since that time, he has taught students at virtually every grade level and coached teams for just about every sport the district offers.

The veteran educator says he will probably stay “until they kick me out the door,” but the highlight of his career so far took place when he was still the head baseball coach at Lee High School. “It was nine or ten years in a row that we made the playoffs,” said Perry. “And in ‘91 or ’92, we were ranked the #2 team in the nation. We were a real powerhouse here for a while.”

Now, Perry serves as a teacher for Lee students in in-school suspension. “It’s kind of fun working with kids who have had some kind of trouble and helping them get back on their feet,” he said. “I counsel them in terms of what to do, and I see different kids every day, so it’s interesting.”

Perry officially marked his anniversary with the district on Sept. 20, but several other employees are also marking theirs this week (Sept. 15–21). See if you know anyone on this list:
