Mrs. Manuel

Hello Students and Welcome to Mrs. Manuel's Physical Education teacher page.  I hope you are staying safe and doing well.  As you are all aware, schools have opened for in-person learning here at Deer Valley High School.  This means that students attend their classes on campus and Mask must be worn indoors at all times.  Masks must cover the nose and mouth.

I'm so excited to be teaching here at Deer Valley High School.  I have been teaching Physical Education going on 22 years and I am a strong advocate for education and physical fitness.  My classes this year are PE I (9th Grade) and PE II (10th Grade).  Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is key to a successful life.  In my spare time, I love hanging out with my family, working out, watching movies, and relaxing.
