Physical Education- Marie Ratto

Hello!!!  My name is Marie Ratto and I have been teaching Physical Education for 26 years in Alameda.  I was born and raised in Alameda, attended Lum Elementary, Wood Middle and Alameda High School.   I graduated from California State University Hayward (now East Bay) in 1989 with a BS in Physical Education.  I received my Teaching Credential in 1990.  I played varsity volleyball, basketball and softball at Alameda High and one year of softball at Cal State Hayward.  I worked for the Alameda Recreation and Park Department as a Recreation Leader while attending college.  I taught Physical Education at Wood Middle School for 11 years and then move to the Elementary level working at various sites across the District.  I also coached basketball and softball in the District.

 I currently live in San Leandro with my husband and son.  I enjoy taking care of my roses in my yard, swimming, going for long walks, playing golf, family gatherings and being a positive role model for our students.
