Ms. Ciaira Briseno
Welcome back!! What an exciting school year we have upon us! Things may be starting a little differently but expectations are still being held high!
I am origionally from the valley but moved to San Antonio on a basketball and academic scholarship. I started at Our Lady of the Lake University and then finished at St. Mary's University with a Bachelor's and Masters. I played basketball and softball in college and am now the Assistant Girls Basketball Coach and Assistant Girls Track Coach. This will be my 2nd year teaching and I will be teaching Physical Education - Dynamic Cardio, Team Recreational Activities and Individual Recreational Activities. I have always had a passion for sports, health and exercising and I cannot wait to share my knowledge and passion with the kids!
When I am not teaching/coaching, I spend a lot of my time with family, friends and working out. I enjoy the water and being outside, so by a lake is where you can also find me! I do find it important to also make time for yourself so I like to put time aside for a yoga practice and daily meditation. I have learned that this practice, no matter how long or short it is, is extremely beneficial to mental health. I enjoy helping others and strive to make a change in society. I am a proud Rough Rider!
