Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Mia Gavin
I’m Mrs. Gavin and I am thrilled to be teaching Health & PE here at Trailside for my third year! I’ve always been passionate about health and fitness and I hope to create a fun and engaging environment for all of my students to learn all about it as well.
I grew up here in Northern Virginia with two brothers. I played tons of sports growing up from soccer to softball to gymnastics, which I competed in for 12 years. I even spent a few years coaching gymnastics and cheerleading before moving away to attend college at West Virginia University (Let’s Go Mountaineers!). After a long career in the homebuilding industry, I decided to get back to what I really loved…..teaching! I like to spend most of my free time playing with my 5 year old daughter, Everly, and my 2 year old son, Lundin. My husband and I like to take them to trampoline parks, playgrounds and the pool whenever we can. I also love to cook and eat all sorts of food. Fun fact: My husband is Mr. Gavin’s older brother which means we root for the Patriots and the Washington Football team around here :)
I'm so excited to be a part of the Wolf Pack, Go Timberwolves!
