Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the new school year! My name is Ms. Wallace and I teach 6th grade PE at Ida Jew Academy, one 7/8th grade PE class at August Boeger Middle School and Adapted Physical Education District wide pre-k-8th grade. I have a passion for encouraging movement in a fun way that is inclusive for all. My goal is to create a safe environment while challenging students to continue to build on their gross movement skills.
A little about me! I am originally from Southern California were I was born and raised. My favorite sport is Soccer which I played all 4 years of high school and a couple years before that. After high school I started coaching soccer which I have continued to do for the past 10 years. A hobby of mine is art. I love doing fun projects or painting. A passion of mine is traveling which I have been doing with my family since I was 12. Always looking forward to the next adventure.
I got my undergraduates degree from Cal State University Fullerton where I studied Kinesiology with an Emphasis in Education. I then went on to Cal Poly Pomona Where I got my Credentials in Physical Education with an added Authorization in Adapted Physical Education which is physical education for students that demonstrate a gross motor delay.
This is my 2nd year teaching and loving every minute of it! In my spare time I enjoy exploring the bay area with new friends, and taking my brothers pup Talia on a run!
