My name is Ms. Risa, and my goal is to become a physical education teach to share my love and passion of physical activity to help others live a long healthy life mentally and physically starting at a young age. I grew up participating in many sports such as soccer, softball, cheer, and gymnastics. I also used other activities to stay active with my friends such as hiking, swimming, volleyball, kayaking, and more. I am going to teach a variety of different activities so students can learn and have new experiences they can use to stay active and have fun.
