Ms. Handley is going into her 4th year of teaching Physical Education and this is her first year with Samueli Academy. Ms. Handley’s passion for fitness, health, and wellness started at a young age fostered through a love of athletics and recreation. She was a lifeguard on Lake Michigan and on her varsity volleyball, basketball, and softball teams in high school and went on to attend Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana. She was involved in various intramural sports as well as working with Valpo’s Recreational Sports Department in teaching Lifeguarding and CPR courses to students, staff, and the community. She hopes to bring her love of lifelong movement to students at Samueli.
In her free time Ms. Handley loves finding new ways to be active outdoors with her friends, family, and 3 year old Golden Retriever, Oliver.
