Welcome to the 2023-24 school year, and welcome to my class! My name is Cody Mitcheltree and I am the physical education teacher for grades 6-8. I am excited about starting my third year at ALA! Before joining the ALA team in Santa Ana Unified, my past experience was in San Francisco Unified School District teaching both middle and high school physical education. I also completed my student teaching training in 7th-grade social science in San Francisco. I am thus dual credentialed in Physical Education and Social Science.
As a physical educator, my goal is for every student to become invested in their physical fitness and health and have fun! This is accomplished by exposing students to various activities, knowledge, and sports skills development. Students also practice goal-setting and track their progress towards achieving those goals.
When I’m not teaching, you can find me outside cycling, running, hiking, or playing golf. I am also an avid sports fan and love to travel.
