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.
