Welcome to Tarwater Toro PE. My name is Mrs. Traficano, known to many of my students as Mrs. T. :) I grew up in Illinois and moved to Arizona in 2007. I played basketball in college and have 14 years experience coaching girls basketball and boys and girls track at both the Elementary, Junior High, and Varsity level. I am married to Joe and we have 4 dogs. One interesting fact about me.... my mother-in-law was my Elementary PE teacher. She is one reason why I became a PE teacher.

My Education and Professional Background

I have a Bachelors of Science degree in PE (1993) and a Masters of Science degree in Adapted Physical Education (2007), both from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. I taught 14 years in Illinois and have been a Tarwater Toro since 2007.

My Educational Philosophy

I am very passionate about my profession. I believe all children no matter their ability, should be made to feel special! In my class it is not about how good you are at something, but your effort and attitude in trying, and I love to see the looks on my student's faces when they learn something that they never thought they could possibly do!!! Tarwater PE is about teaching a love for exercise! I am hopeful the skills we are teaching our students will help them to become active adults and lifelong lovers of exercise!!
