Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Mrs. Osinski and I am very excited to be a Physical Education teacher at Pine Valley. Although this was my 2nd year teaching at Pine Valley, I have taught Physical Education and Health at various levels for the past 13 years. I started my teaching career at Frewsburg Central and I have also taught in Springville, Lackawanna, Dunkirk, and Hamburg. In each of my past districts I have gained a variety of experiences and great memories!
I completed my Bachelor's degree SUNY Brockport where I was also on the tennis team and indoor soccer and broomball teams. I completed Master's degree at SUNY Buffalo State and Canisius College.
My husband is also a Physical Education teacher and we have been incredibly blessed with 3 handsome and very active boys: 8, 6, and 3 years old. We also have a German Sheppard puppy. Although our lives are always very busy with sports, coaching and puppy training, we would have it no other way!
It is my passion to educate and inspire kids and students of all ages. It is my goal to help them understand the importance and value of life long physical education and health. We only have 1 body, so we really do need to take care of it!! Leading by example is my moto' and a task I take seriously.
In my free time I enjoy training and running half marathons as well other endurance events such as duathlons, triathlons and running relays. Although I love all sports and activities that keep me fit and healthy, I still play competitive softball and enjoy recreational tennis leagues. I also LOVE the winter and all snow sports including skiing. I enjoy sharing many of my accomplishments with my students so they hopefully will learn to love and value activity and sports and also understand the sense of accomplishments through goal setting. Family time is very important to me and when we are not at someones sporting event, together we enjoy time spent outdoors..... on the ski slopes ... on the lake or at the beach!
