Cruz Conejo

Physical Education Teacher

Hiawatha College Prep-Kingfield

What are the set of experiences that brought you to teaching?
While I was in school I was always surrounded by passionate teachers that cared about me and supported me throughout the different stages of my school life. During high school I decided that I wanted to be that for others and so decided to combine my passion for exercise and sports in order to become a physical education teacher.

Why did you choose to teach at Hiawatha Academies?
Because of the passion and hard work that was described to me during the interview process. Once I had the opportunity to become part of the team I was able to see and live that. We care about our students!

How does your classroom environment represent who you are?
My class environment is always moving to the rhythm of music. I tend to trust my students and they value that.
