I am Amy Cole, the Physical Education teacher at Grant Watts. This is my 25 year in education. I have been a teacher for 11 years and a school Administrator for 14 years. I hold a Bachelors of Arts degree from Ithaca College and a Masters degree in Educational Administration - Principal from the University of Phoenix. I also have additional credits in Adaptive Physical Education. I am an only child. I grew up on a 1,200 acre farm in Lima, New York. My father passed away in 2009. My mother now lives with me. I am an animal lover, especially dogs. I own a small dog named "Dymond". I typically get my dogs at the Human Society. I played basketball in college. I lettered in basketball, volleyball and softball in high school. I love all kinds of sports. I am a huge Buffalo Bills and Boston Celtics fan. I have lived in NY, AZ and OR. I love to travel. I have been to every state in the US except Alaska. I have also traveled to South Korea, China, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Canada, Mexico and Iceland. I have a very special hobby - it is Drag Racing. I race at Portland International Raceway (PIR) and at Woodburn Drag strip. Last year I raced for PIR in the ET Finals. I received the first points for our team by having the best reaction times in the three practice rounds. I had a .001, .002, and .001. It was a blast. This year I am going to race in three classes - Sportsman, Powder puff, and Pick-up. I race with my cousin - Harry. We have a blast.
I am so glad to be in Scappoose. People are so kind and nice. They have made me feel really welcomed in the community. I look forward to finishing my career in education here in Scappoose!
