I am very excited to be a part of the Scanlan Oaks Elementary family. This school year will be my sixth as a physical education teacher. I was born and raised in Houston, Texas and graduated from Eisenhower High School. Growing up as a student athlete led me to a career in coaching and education. In addition to obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at the University of North Texas in 2008, I later received my teaching certification from the State of Texas.
I am experienced in providing a safe and fun physical education class; and, I bring over fifteen years of experience in coaching both individual and team sports including basketball, soccer, football, track and field, cross country, and swimming. I encourage students to focus on improving their overall health and fitness, cooperating with others in a team setting, and developing a genuine enthusiasm for exercise. I set high standards and encourage ALL students to put forth their best effort in PE, their classrooms, and all endeavors of their lives.
I look forward to working with all of the faculty, staff, students, and parents at Scanlan Oaks.
