Hello and welcome to Coach Cantu's page. I have been working at Presbyterian Pan American School since 2008. I am the Athletic Director, Assistant Counselor as well as the Health and Career Orientation teacher along with coaching Cross Country, Volleyball, Girls Soccer and Track and Field.
In my classes I hope to inspire kids to learn about how to take care of themselves and to start thinking about their career paths. I have an open door policy and welcome all students to come and talk about anything that is on their mind. Growing up in Estonia and moving to study in the United States helps me relate to our students and some of the struggles that they face.
As an Athletic Director and coach, I hope to teach them more than the sport but life lessons as well. I truly believe that one can apply lessons learned on the field and court to real life and that make them well-rounded individuals. During my free time I love spending time with my husband Ruben and children Jaanus and Jaarika. I love flowers and dark chocolate as well as coffee and turtles. My favorite hobby is traveling and learning about different cultures.
