Hello Southland College Prep Family! 

My name is Tamara Somerville and I am the 11th grade Physical Education Teacher.  This will be my 18th year teaching P.E. ranging from Pre-K - 12th grade.  I also have 5 years of experience as an Athletic Director and 15 years as a basketball coach.  I was born and raised in Gary, IN.  I graduated from Gary West Side HS where I played basketball, volleyball and softball for 4 consecutive years.  I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from Tennessee State University and my Masters of Science Degree from Valparaiso University. 

I am excited about teaching/coaching students a variety of sports and activities to hopefully encourage you to join a team or different organization.
