Ms. Liliana Igmen
Hello! My name is Miss Trish Gertsma! Here’s a little about me!
I have lived in the Reno/Sparks area for the majority of my life. I did live in the Bay Area for 7 years. I loved Nevada so much, I just had to come back. Currently, I am a teacher candidate from Western Governors University. I have worked as a long term and short term substitute teacher for the past several years alongside managing a clothing store. I love teaching and coaching. Since I was a child, I’ve always wanted to become a teacher. My goal is to make a positive difference in the lives I interact with. I love working with kids both academically and in sports. I help teach kids Jiu jitsu with one of my professors at 360 Martial Arts and almost train daily at Conviction Martial Arts. Although, Jiu jitsu takes over most of my personal life; I also love to read, write, spend time with family and drink coffee. I also love to try new sports and hobbies because I love to challenge myself. Nothing makes you stronger than getting out of your comfort zone and challenging yourself!
For the next few months, I will be working with Ms. Chris in second grade! I am excited to meet everyone! This will be a great year!
