My Bio

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.  Two years ago, 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 individuals.  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 run in 8 half marathons, 15ks, 10ks and little 5ks.  I also coach volleyball at San Tan and Club volleyball.  I have been coaching for 18 years now.  Go Road Runners!! Let this year begin!
