My name is Katie Sawaya and I teach Physical Education here at Rocklin Academy.
My husband and I have lived in Rocklin since 1991. We live with our two sons, Anthony and Jacob.Both boys attended Rocklin Academy and Western Sierra Collegiate Academy. I am a strong supporter of the Core Knowledge curriculum. Anthony is currently attending Sierra College and Jacob is a sophomore at Rocklin High School.
I attended College of the Siskiyous for two years then I graduated from Sonoma State University in 1989 with a degree in Liberal Studies. Following college, I enjoyed working with children in the after-school programs at schools in Davis then in Roseville. I was assistant director of the Adventure Club program at Crestmont Elementary School in Roseville for 5 years. In recent years, I have done some substitute teaching at Rocklin Academy.
I am excited to have the opportunity to teach Physical Education to the kids at Rocklin Academy's Meyer Street campus. I look forward to providing fun, safe, and challenging activities that will help each child reach their full potential.
