Shonda Tamez, Owner

Shonda brings over 11 years of experience in the education field. From working as a Preschool Director with children ages 6 weeks to 12 years old, to most recently an elementary teacher, she has always been hands on with children. Originally from Little Rock, AR, Coach Shonda grew up very active and participated in multiple sports throughout grade school. After receiving an honorable discharge from the United States Army, she relocated to North Carolina and wanted to transition towards a career that she felt truly passionate about, educating children. Shonda’s love of learning and teaching young children focused her college studies, graduating with an Associates in Early Childhood Education Administration, a Bachelors in Educational Studies, and an M.Ed. in Educational Leadership.

“Amazing Athletes is truly perfect, it combines my passion for teaching children and love of sports. Not only do I believe in the curriculum and program, but I also take pride in knowing that I’m able to help build a generation of healthy, active, and confident children.”
