• Welcome Ridge Mountain Lions!

    My name is Coach Glonek.  I have been teaching and coaching Health, Wellness & Athletics for more than 26 years.  This is my passion and I am excited to share it with you and hopefully make a difference in your life.

    A little about me:

    I grew up in Chicago and graduated from the University of Arizona where I was a student-athlete and then drafted by the New York Jets to play football.  My career was abbreviate by a severe back injury.  I quickly gathered my emotion and energy and channeled it into teaching and coaching.  I have taught Physical Education, Advanced Athletic Sport Classes, Health Education, Advanced Resistance Training for Dual Enrollment and now I am pleased to be teaching the new Power Training Program.  

    I completed my Masters Degree at the University of Northern Arizona.  I am a certified personal trainer and I have completed continueing education courses and conferences from a variety of higher level learning institutions. I am a certified Health, Sociology and Spanish Teacher as well.  I have attended spanish immersion study programs in 4 different countries.

    My favorite mantra is: The most important person in the room is anyone other than me.

    I also teach for the Scottsdale Community College as an ad-junct instructor teaching Exercise Science, Healthy Lifestyles and as a fitness instructor.

    Other passions in my life are my own personal fitness.  I exercise 5 - 7 days each week. 

    Travel is another large part of my life.  I have traveled to 84 different countries and someday I plan on visiting 100 different countries and all 7 continents.  I enjoy searching personal growth, wisdom, and learning about new cultures.  

    I am offering an afterschool program for students who want additional training.  All dates are to be determined and are subject to change through out the school year based on student and program needs.

    In the event a student has a question I encourage student to contact me first, in person or via email before parents contact me for greater clarity.  

    The best way to contact me is through my work email paul.glonek@dvusd.org
