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 6 year old daughter, Everly, and my 3 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 Commanders around here :)

I'm so excited to be back as a part of the Wolf Pack, Go Timberwolves!
