Mrs. Shanley

Health and fitness has shaped and changed so many parts of my life. My goal is to empower my students in the same way. I have seen the impact of health & fitness extend well beyond sport and movement, it has the ability to change a person’s perspectives and view challenges in life with relentless optimism. I strive to be a well rounded passionate educator and remain on the forefront of health, fitness, strength & conditioning. I believe it's important to always be a student and seek to collaborate with other driven, successful individuals of varied backgrounds.
