I am very excited to begin my SEVENTH year at Santa Teresa High School. My goal is to give my students the knowledge they need to lead fun, healthy, active lives. We will accomplish this utilizing a variety of fitness activities, as well as non-traditional games.
I grew up in Santa Cruz, CA. Graduated college from San Jose State University with my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and an emphasis in Physical Education. This last year I became a mom and love spending time with my son, Bowie.
I enjoy traveling and have been to Hawaii, Chicago, Baltimore, Costa Rica, and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
I previously coached both the Girl's Volleyball and Soccer teams at ST, GO SAINTS!
My students should come to class on time, dressed appropriately, and with a good attitude.
Be prepared to be challenged physically and mentally as we follow a rigorous standards-based program in which you will learn how to improve and maintain a high level of physical and mental fitness.
Course 1 students will be participating in Individual/Dual activities such as: Swim, Tennis, Dance, Fitness, Shuffleboard, Bocce Ball, Bowling, Climbing Wall, Badminton, etc.
Course 2 students will be participating in Team activities such as: Football, Volleyball, Lacrosse, Basketball, Soccer, Fitness, Hockey, etc.
All students will participate in the California mandated Fitnessgram Testing which will take place in the early spring. This test will measure 6 aspects of health to give you and your child feedback on potential risk factors and to encourage a healthy active lifestyle. Students who do not pass 5 out of 6 tests will be tested each previous year and continue physical education until they reach the healthy fitness zone for 5 of the 6 tests.
I look forward to seeing you in class!
