Hello Students and Parents,
I’m excited to introduce myself as Physical Education teacher at Sierra Vista. This will be an exciting year in the Sierra Vista Physical Education Department. I earned my Credential as a Physical Education Teacher at Cerro Villa Middle School in the Orange Unified School District in coordination with Cal State Fullerton University. As an Educator, I hold a Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology, K-12 Physical Education Teaching Credential, and plan on continuing my education towards a Master’s degree. While in College I spent time helping people reach their fitness goals as a Certified Performance Trainer. As Fire Academy Graduate and Certified EMT, I enjoy spending my free time volunteering for a local Fire Department. I also spend a great deal of time staying active. I enjoy running, swimming, circuit training, and participating in recreational sports. As an educator, I believe in the success of all students and hope to inspire lifelong wellness. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email for any reason. Let’s make it a great year!
