Mr. Farrell

I have been teaching here at Colina Middle School since 2005. Prior to my career as a teacher I enjoyed many other occupations. One of my favorite was as a Youth Activities Director aboard a cruise ship. I spent 5 years traveling the world and learned many things including great games and activities for kids to enjoy. Since joining Colina I have been a Physical Education teacher, an ASB advisor, a volleyball coach and a basketball coach. I believe in our school motto and try to reinforce those ideals in both my teaching and my coaching. When I am not at Colina working or coaching I enjoy being an active person. I have many hobbies that I pursue in my free time including mountain biking, running, softball and swimming. I believe the idea of lifelong fitness shouldn't just be taught but also lived.
