Willian Petty

Teaching P.E. is what I love to do because I can share my love for sports and how through sports kids learn very important life lessons. Pe can show a child that there are many different ways to be active and how healthy eating habits are critical to this. By doing this I am able to have positive relationships with all the students of the school that will carry on forever.

I was born on 3/25/76 in Bayonne, New Jersey to my parents Marion and Clayton where I attended Elementary school and high school. I am the youngest of 7 , I have 6 siblings, 3 brothers, and 3 sisters. Upon graduating from Bayonne HS I attended Merced Junior college in Merced, California where I completed my Associate of Arts degree. I then transferred to Cal State Stanislaus in Turlock, California where I completed B.A in Physical education.

In 2001, I began my teaching career in my home town of Bayonne, NJ at Horace Mann School # 6 and Washington Community School #9. I then taught at Mary J. Donohoe School #4 for before moving to Arizona and the Vail school district. I  have taught at Acacia Elementary and Pantano HS in the VSD before moving to Esmond station in 2014.

I have been married to my wife Rosalie for 14 years and we have 3 wonderful children who all attend Esmond Station. Caden is in 7th grade, Mason is in 4th grade and Sofia is in 3rd grade. Who all play club soccer for RSLAZ in Sahuarita where we live.

In my spare time, I spend time watching my kids play soccer. Also, I coach 4 soccer teams. I am also an avid golfer and play whenever I get a chance. We also have 2 dogs Chloe and Henry that keep us very busy and entertained.
