Mr. Peirce (pronounced "purse")
My name is Khai Peirce, and I will be your child's Health and Fitness teacher at Truman Middle School. I have taught with the Tacoma School District since 1990 and at Truman since 1999. While at Truman, I've coached many sports including boys basketball and soccer and girls basketball and fastpitch, but since 2012 I've served Truman as its athletic director. If you have any questions about athletics, please email me in the contacts tab or check out the athletics tab for more information.
I was born in Vietnam and lived in Tacoma since 1975. I went to Mason Jr. High, but my heart is truly Trumanite, so I married one. My wife, Heidi, who went to Truman Jr. High, and I have four beautiful children: Reilley, Lydia, Creston, and Amelia.
My goal is to develop a health and fitness program to enhance the abilities of your child to assume control and responsibility for a healthy and active lifestyle. I hope to do this by helping students to define and measure success, improve student confidence, and increase student motivation and interest in physical activity.
