Mrs. Copas

I grew up in the Bay Area, and was raised in a sports culture. Growing up as an athlete allowed me to be passionate about the culture I facilitate in all of my P.E. classes. I received my Bachelors Degree from San Francisco State University in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Physical Education. I have always been drawn to physical activity and fitness, and installing those attributes to the younger generations is what makes me love my job!
