Degrees and Certifications:
BS from the University of Arizona
Hi, my name is Jane Morales. I am originally from Canton, Ohio. I came to Arizona to swim for the University of Arizona. I loved it so much I stayed. I am married to Andy Morales (who is also a PE teacher at Rio Vista as well as a high school sports writer). We have 3 beautiful daughters: Arianna, Brittney and Maggie. All 3 girls are now grown, but they all attended Coronado when they were younger. I have taught here a Coronado for over 20 years.
Defining Moment in Education
I always knew I would be a teacher. I have taught swimming lessons since I was 15 years old.
Core Educational Belief
I believe in the education of the “whole” child, and that education can be fun as well as a learning experience.
Before teaching here at Coronado, I was a swim coach, a special education teaching assistant at Rillito Center, and a swim instructor.
I currently work with the town of Oro Valley running camps in the summer and on our spring and fall breaks.
This summer I will be running a camp over at the Oro Valley Aquatic center.
