Hello! My name is Janie Tomasek and I am excited to be teaching Art and P.E. for my first year on this side of San Tan Recker Campus. Last year I was an Assistant in the Toddler classroom in the Montessori side. I have always loved being around children watching them grow and become their own individual. As someone who has played sports all their life (especially volleyball) I have always have had a passion in being a P.E. teacher. Then also getting the ability to teach Art this year too.
I grew up in Illinois and attended Elmhurst College where I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts. In 2014, I moved out here to be closer to my Niece and Nephew and to get away from the cold and snow.
When I’m not teaching, you can find me working out, swimming, hiking, relaxing at home and enjoying time with my niece and nephew. I enjoy working out especially running; so far I have ran in in 7 half marathons, and will do at least 2 more this year. I also coach volleyball at San Tan and Club volleyball at Club One. I have been coaching for 14 years now, and got to be a Youth Director. Go Road Runners!! Let this year begin!
