O'Leary, Jenelle - PE

Hi! My name is Jenelle O’Leary and I’m the part-time Physical Education Specialist on-site at Dingeman Elementary School. I have been an educator in the San Diego Unified School District since 2006 and started at Dingeman in the fall of 2021. However, my journey into education started much earlier in the form of teaching my little brother when I was a kid. Later, I worked at a private school as an aide and volunteered my time working with children.

Although I started my teaching career in the classroom, I decided to make the change over to PE in 2017 when I realized that my weekends were spent connecting with people through activity and sport. I realized I could connect to the kids in the same way by teaching PE. I found it is also a great place to teach students life skills to be used throughout their lives, including good sportsmanship and perseverance. I truly enjoy being around kids and seeing them grow and develop.

When I’m not at school working with students in Physical Education I’m usually at home being a mom to my two fun-loving kids. We love going to the park, spending time with family, and just being silly together.

When I’m not working or at home with my children I’m generally playing soccer- my favorite sport. I spend a few times each week playing with friends and my husband, and have found it’s a good way to stay in shape, socialize, and have some fun. With such a welcoming staff and student body, I am very grateful to be part of the Dingeman community. See you on the PE field!
