I am so excited to be your child's PE teacher this year at Barron! This will be my 13th year of teaching. Prior to becoming a PE teacher, I was a Kindergarten teacher at another school in the district, but I always knew my passion was to teach students about physical fitness and building healthy habits throughout their life.
Some fun facts about me include that I was a personal trainer prior to becoming a teacher and have also enjoyed teaching cardio kickboxing at a local gym. My family has called Plano home for the last 26 years, and our 3 kids loved going to school in PISD.
In my personal time, I love spending time with my family and friends. Working out, walking, hiking, and cycling are just some of the activities I enjoy doing to stay active. Traveling, trying new restaurants, and watching reality sports shows bring me happiness, as well.
My goal is to create a safe, fun, and lasting fitness experience for all kiddos who come into the gym. If there is anything I can do to help you or your child, please do not hesitate to reach out. GO BIG CATS!
