I am currently an Adapted Physical Education teacher for grades pre-K through High School. High School: With my High School students our focus is on nutrition, physical fitness and recreation activities. Elementary: For my elementary students I am working with the school Speech Therapist to complete a sensory integration program with our students in Special Education. This program is thematically based and focused on meeting the students Sensory Integration needs through educational activities, while building language skills. Yoga: I also teach yoga weekly to my Elementary students with physical disabilities.
My focus is always to get students moving and active.

I have a degree in Kinesiology from Michigan State University where I also played Division 1 Field Hockey. After returning to California I received my Single Subject credential in Physical Education with an Adapted PE certificate. I have been teaching Adapted PE for over 10 years in the Sacramento City Unified School District.
I enjoy running barefoot and competing in adventure races (Mud Runs, triathlons). We also enjoy traveling to Costa Rica (and other exciting places), camping, cooking and coaching my daughters sports teams.
