Country Day School - Harlet Channer

PE Teacher

I was born and raised in Costa Rica. I’ve been in Elementary Physical Education for the last 25 years as well as coaching the Middle School Boys Volleyball. In 1986, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Physical Education and finished a postgraduate degree in Teaching Physical Education in 2007;  both degrees were earned at the University of Costa Rica. Last year I completed my training in the Kids Athletic program.  Teaching and playing with children of different ages is very gratifying for me.

Volleyball is one of my passions.  I played first division Volleyball in Costa Rica for more than 25 years, as well as competed on the National Costa Rican team for more than 20 of those years.  During my years on the national team, we won the Central American Volleyball Championship regularly.  I also competed internationally in Central America in the area of Track & Field. I love volleyball, dancing, and going out with family and friends.
