Hello, my name is Cheryl Hess. I am excited to be given the opportunity to teach physical education at the incredible school of Montecito Union.
I am a native of Santa Barbara, having gone to local schools through high school, before attending UCLA for my undergraduate education, then Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where I earned my multiple subject teaching credential. I started my career at Vieja Valley Elementary School, teaching third and fourth grade, before taking a hiatus to focus on raising my three children. I went back to teaching when my kids were also at Monte Vista Elementary School and there I realized how much I loved teaching Physical Education. I have since earned my PE credential and feel incredibly privileged to have the best job in the world.
Outside of my professional life, I am married to my wonderful husband, Brad, who is also a Santa Barbara native. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, bike riding, beach walks, and cheering on my kids as they participate in various sporting and musical events.
Please feel free to stop by, email, or give me a call. I would love to meet you and gain insight into your child’s specific needs. I look forward to getting to know each of my students and sharing my joy in maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle.
