Coach Tewers:Hello Sunset Ridge Hawks! My name is Jessica Tewers, most of you know me from First Grade. I have taught First Grade for 13 years, (11 of them at Sunset Ridge). When I had the opportunity to move into PE last school year and stay at Sunset Ridge, I knew I couldn't pass it up. I am so excited to be coaching PE during this school year.I have lived in Arizona most of my life, moving here when I was 8 years old. I have always known I wanted to be an Elementary school teacher and graduated from ASU West with my Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood. I started my teaching career at Park Meadows (2 years) and moved to Sunset Ridge, where I found my second home. I got my Physical Education endorsement 2 years ago and I am ready to put it to use.When I am not in the classroom. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Mickee, and our three boys, Brody, Troy & Nixon. All three of our boys play baseball and Troy also plays football, which means we are always running to practice or a game of some sort. They keep us very busy after school and on the weekends. I love being active and outside, usually hiking, running or playing outside with the boys, when we have free time.I am looking forward to this new adventure with Sunset Ridge students, where I can help them be challenged and successful with Physical Education.Coach Bodily:
Hi my name is Michelle Bodily and I am so excited to teach PE at Sunset Ridge. I worked as a sub this last year and enjoyed being with the students and staff at Sunset Ridge so much I jumped on the opportunity to teach PE when it was presented!
I was born and raised in Utah and attended Salt Lake Community College where I played soccer. After earning my Associate’s Degree I transferred to Utah State University for my Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education, majoring in Physical Education with minors in Psychology and Health. I have recently added my Elementary PE Endorsement. I taught high school PE in Illinois for 4 years before taking a 12 year break to be a mom. While teaching I also coached boys and girls soccer, and after moving to Arizona in 2010, I coached girls’ soccer at Deer Valley High School for another 4 years.
I have been married to my husband for 20 years, we have 2 daughters Leah and Kenzie that have attended Sunset Ridge since kindergarten. Some of the things I enjoy in my spare time are sports (playing and watching), escape rooms, camping, traveling, playing the drums and watching a good movie.
I am excited to teach PE and to help students at Sunset Ridge gain confidence in themselves and a love for Physical Education.
