My name is Becca Lucas, and I have taught PE at Sunset Ridge for 10 years. I have been married to my husband Mark for 28 years, and we have 2 sons. Their ages are 22 years old and 18 years old, so that means one graduated from college and one will begin college! Our family loves outdoor activities!! We mountain bike, hike, backpack, ski, snowboard, kayak, fish, and raft! Our family was fortunate to experience the trip of a lifetime a few summers ago - rafting the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon on our own raft, along with friends. 16 days on the river!!
I hope to instill in our Sunset Ridge students the goal of lifetime activity and fitness!
My name is Trevor Thirsk, I am still fairly new to Arizona and have spent the last three years teaching at Sunset Ridge! I was born and raised in Washington State. I attended Washington State University where I met my wife and graduated with a degree in Recreation Administration. Upon graduating college I lived in Telluride, Co as well as Bend, OR. After getting married, my wife and I moved back to the Seattle area. I worked at the Walt Disney Internet group for several years before deciding that I wanted to work for myself. I became a Real Estate Broker and started my own construction/remodeling business. While running my own businesses, I was able to also be a stay at home dad with my two girls. It was through working in their classrooms that I found a passion for teaching. 9 years ago I began my Masters in Elementary Education program. During this time, we decided to make a big move and left Seattle for Arizona in December of 2011. I am looking forward to working at Sunset Ridge and the opportunity to help build a successful and productive Physical Education department in which all students are challenged and successful.
When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family. My girls will be going into the 7th and 10th grade! I also enjoy spending time on the golf course and I am an avid fly fishermen. I grew up playing sports including, baseball, basketball, soccer, football and skiing. I have also spent over 12 years working in the NBA, I started as a ball boy for the Seattle Sonics when I was 11 years old, and spent breaks in college working for various teams throughout the league. Most recently I am the Varsity boys basketball assistant coach at Boulder Creek and am the District Middle School Athletic Director.
