Degrees and Certifications:
Lisa Tunnell, MAT, ATC, LAT
I am so fortunate to be in Sunnyvale ISD and teaching Health Science Technology this year! My background is in sports medicine and rehabilitative sciences, and I am excited to bring this perspective into the classroom, as well as explore all aspects of the healthcare field to create a well-rounded learning experience. I earned a bachelors degree in Kinesiology from California State University, Hayward--graduating in 2 years before moving on to earn a Masters degree in Athletic Training from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. I concurrently pursued a Masters degree in Education from Lubbock Christian University.
I started my education and rehabilitation career as an athletic trainer and sports medicine teacher, and have also taught 8th grade science. I love being in the classroom, but my passion is hands-on education experiences--I truly believe in education for the future. My goal is to shape the curriculum to provide tools and skills that will be useful in the immediate future for my health sciences students.
My husband, Brandon, is also an educator. We are raising twin boys who attend Sunnyvale schools, and have a little girl that will start school in a few years. Go Raiders!
