Hi. I'm Mrs. Ames. Although this is only my 2nd year at RT, I taught 20 years at PT (O'Plaine) and 4 years prior to that. In addition to teaching PE, I've been a choreographer for 5th grade Drama Club; taught and choreographed for Dance Club; headed up Destination Imagination; and directed 3 other before/after school clubs at PT...Club Fit (Yoga & Running) and Sports/Cheer Club. I hope to become more involved in some of the clubs here at RT. I have been teaching fitness classes since 1993 and am certified in just about everything, including personal training and sports nutrition. Currently, I teach nights and weekends at the RecPlex in Pleasant Prairie, WI. Over the past couple years, I earned top placement in a few nearby bodybuilding & physique competitions and participated in some 5K mud runs. I have 2 kids (Scott in 11th grade at Wilmot High School and Raegan in 8th at Riverview School) who keep me very busy. In addition to working as an engineer, my husband trains hunting dogs for NAVHDA and judges tests for the NADKC. As of now, we have 2 English pointers and a mini long-haired dachshund. They keep us busy, too. Please feel free to contact me at any time or come in to join us for a workout! I look forward to helping your kids stay fit!
