Mrs. Joli Finch
Hello, my name is Joli Finch. I am happily married and blessed with a wonderful family, which includes a handsome husband of 24 years, and 2 beautiful children. I became a teacher for many reasons, but the most important one was because I felt I could make a difference in a child’s life. I feel a successful classroom can be achieved if there is an enthusiastic teacher that is fair, firm, friendly, consistent, well-prepared, and most important of all – Caring!
I was born and raised in Calallen, attended The Alamo, Annaville Elementary, Calallen Middle School, and graduated from Calallen High School. I have my Bachelor’s in Kinesiology and Health from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. I am certified to teach Physical Education EC-12, and I am also a certified EC-4 Generalist Teacher. This is my 12th year at Calallen East.
Physical education is an essential part of every child's curriculum. Our goal is for all kids to enjoy coming to P.E. class and to realize the importance of lifelong benefits of moderate to vigorous activity and healthy eating. P.E. not only teaches the psychomotor domain, but the cognitive and affective domains as well.
FUN FACT: I am the 4th Generation Calallen Teacher and my family has taught in Calallen for a total of 160 YEARS!!!!!
