Darlene Argano

Darlene Argano

Sierra Vista Elementary School
Albuquerque, New Mexico

Old school and new school.  Darlene Argano is not one to join fitness fads or to abandon core PE philosophies.  She is a visionary that sees new activities and finds a way to incorporate new fitness and movement into her core school plan.   She is not out with the old, in with the new.  Instead she takes her time to try programming and slowly innovate and update activities for her students.   She is in this for the long haul and we could not be more honored that she is "growing her craft" as a master Physical Education Teacher with Project Fit America as part of her programming.  She is a selfless, pro fitness teacher that is changing the lives of her students.  She works outside her classes, without pay, during her "free time", to provide opportunities for fitness activities for her students before, after school and during lunch.  She also provides health and fitness activities for the staff as well to help them personally reach their fitness goals.

In summary if you were to walk onto the campus of Sierra Vista Elementary School you would find, what we found . . . a school alive and vibrant with every student reaching for his or her fullest potential!
