Electives Teacher - Art/Yearbook

My Bio

Hello! My name is Janie Tomasek, this is my 7th year teaching as a PE Teacher and Art Teacher at San Tan.  I will also be teaching yearbook this coming year! So excited to be apart of making that!  I started my 1st year working here in the Montessori.  I was in Preschool for couple of months then moved over to the Toddler room for a full year.  Then moved over to become a full-time teacher!

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 coaching volleyball, working out, swimming, hiking, relaxing at home and enjoying time with my family.  I enjoy working out but I took a break from running; so far I have run in 8 half marathons, 15ks, 10ks and little 5ks.  I also run the varsity program for volleyball at Gilbert Classical Academy.  I have been coaching for 20 years now.  Go Road Runners!! Let this year begin!
