  My name is Sarah Paoli.  I am originally from Denver Colorado but this is my home. I        have lived in Marin for about 25 years.  I have a daughter who recently graduated from    TL, my Alma mater.  I studied Business Management and Recreation and found my            passion in the Recreation side. I have been fortunate to work in the education and            aquatics fields for almost 24 years.  I have coached swimming for MSL teams, a year-        round swim team and currently coach for San Marin High.  In PE, I will teach games that reinforce sportsmanship, team building, hand/eye coordination and physical activity that helps the students bodies and minds I am so fortunate to be a part of the Vallecito family.  I look forward to another year with all of your children.
