K-12 Teaching Certificate in Health & Physical Education
Tasha is a former colligate athlete who grew up in the Sunshine State, Florida. She discovered her love of sports which opened up an opportunity for her to earn a full scholarship to the University of Richmond where she met her husband Randy, a former football player. While there, she earned her B.S in Health and Sport Science which led her to complete her teaching certification in K-12 Health and PE education. She taught in the public school system for 17 years before leaving to homeschool her two children. Tasha's teaching style is very high energy which creates a very engaging and lively environment. In her free time, she enjoys learning "the ways of old" such as gardening, food preservation including fermenting and the not-so-scary world of pressure canning.
Tasha is grateful for the opportunity to be part of the Bridge Academy family and looks forward to teaching in a Christ-centered environment.
