Welcome, Toro's and family! I am extremely excited to be your PE teacher! This year will be a great year and I cannot wait to get going and meet everyone. I was born and raised in South Dakota and I am beyond happy to be in The Valley of the Sun!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Mount Marty College in Yankton, South Dakota (Go Lancers!) with a B.A. in Exercise Science, where I also played baseball. Soon after, I went back to obtain my M.A. in Education from The University of South Dakota and graduated this past December. This will be my first year of full-time teaching and I cannot wait!

My Educational Philosophy

I believe in creating an active and engaging class where students not only learn to develop skills and play team games, but also have the opportunity to learn about how they can take physical fitness and health with them throughout the rest of their lives. I also believe in students developing relationships with classmates, teachers, and staff while having a positive, family-like culture. I want my students to be leaders inside the classroom, but more importantly, outside the classroom.
