Physical Education Dept.

Greeting parents!
I was born in South Central Los Angeles and I am the oldest of four children. I grew up in a household where athletics and academics were highly regarded. I played in youth pro soccer academies and played semi-pro until I decided to pursue my Bachelors of Arts in Physical Education and teaching credential at California State Dominguez Hills.
I have been teaching at Clinton Middle School for 7 years and enjoy promoting the positive aspects of fitness and sport to the youth in the community I grew up in.
I will be coaching our Clinton Middle School SRLA (Student's Run LA) team for a 3rd year and we will be training to run the LA Marathon in 2024.
I am also in charge of managing the Clinton Middle School Weight Training Club. I teach students the basics of weight training in a safe and rigorous program.
The mission statement of the Clinton Middle School PE Department is to promote healthy lifestyles through physical activity, personal safety, stress, and weight management. Students are encourage to participate in activities that promote social and mental wellness, chronic disease prevention, and improved quality of life.
