Ms. Amanda Tivnan

P.E. Teacher & Head Track and Field Coach

My name is Amanda Tivnan and this will be my eighth year (2019-20) at Palmer Ridge High School as a Physical Education/Health Teacher and Track and Field Coach. It has been such an amazing experience being a teacher and coach in this great district. I have enjoyed working with the staff and students here at Palmer Ridge High School. I was honored to be part of the coaching staff for Palmer Ridge's first back to back State Title in Men's Track and Field (2013-14 and 2014-15), with the 4x400 meter team becoming All-Americans the summer of 2014 at the 2014 New Balance Nationals. I believe this all came from the hard-work ethic that the students at Palmer Ridge show day in and day out, in the classroom and on the field.

I completed my bachelor's degree from The University of Northern Colorado (GO BEARS!) in 2010. I just finished my Master's Degree in Physical Education and Physical Activity Leadership at The University of Northern Colorado and had the honor of presenting my work at a conference at UNC this past summer. I look forward to a great year ahead with your students. Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions, my planning periods are first and seventh hours.

REMOTE LEARNING - All of my classes will be using the canvas application.  We have used this already in all my classes so students should know how to get onto this application.  If they have any issues please contact me via email.
