Hello there, I am Eric Wolski and I am happy to be back at Sandy Grade School for my second year as the Physical Education teacher. I split my time with Naas Elementary, so I get twice the fun with teaching PE at two schools. Before going back to school to get my Masters in Teaching from Concordia University, I received my Bachelors Degree in Social Work also from Concordia. I worked in a secure residential drug and alcohol unit at the Donald E. Long juvenile detention facility in NE Portland for nine years. The program worked with youth that struggled with substance abuse and criminal behaviors, before closing in 2014.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my wife, April, my daughter that we adopted earlier this year, Arabella, and my chocolate lab, Cooper. I love listening to music, and collecting vinyl records. I am a big Boston Red Sox and Oregon State Beavers fan and I enjoy competing in 5K races throughout the year with my next goal of running the Portland half marathon.
