Biography
Patti has worked in extra-curricular learning programs for over 15 years. Since moving to the West Coast, she has taught circus arts as PE in over 20 Bay Area schools and led STEM classes in various after-school programs across SF. Patti has also directed Acrosports summer camp, a popular performing arts camp in San Francisco. Patti loves combining skill-building, creative exploration, and fitness into one awesome, highly engaging experience. As the JK-1 PE substitute at AVS, her goal is to create a fun and energetic space where kids can safely explore movement with creativity and purpose. When she's not substitute teaching, Patti can be found walking her dogs, cooking with her kids, and planning her next road trip.
