Shantael Booqua--Girl's Personal Wellnessnew times

Keshi/Hello, my name is Shantael Booqua. I'm from the Zuni pueblo, I was born and raised here in Albuquerque, NM. I'm an alumni that attended NACA from 2006-2013. This is my second year teaching Personal Wellness, but my fourth year working at NACA, I was the first grade EA for a couple years then switched to third grade before teaching PW. I received my Bachelor's degree in Physical Education from UNM in 2019. During my college years, I learned that my passion was to work with kids and teach them how to live healthy lifestyles. I'm happy to be working at NACA because this is where I basically grew up at and I want to give back to my community and be a role model for the youth.
