P. Terry Tsivitse

7th/8th Grade Science Teacher



My name is P. Terry Tsivitse and I love being a Science Educator! I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio but moved to Colorado as it better suits my passion for the outdoors and extreme sports. I am a graduate of Ohio University with a degree in Physical/Life Sciences and a Masters in Secondary Science Education. I am currently a graduate student at University of Colorado Denver in their Masters of Environmental Sciences with a focus on GIS, as I am an advocate for being a lifelong learner! I have been an educator my entire life, but have done so in many different formats. I have been a Teacher in DPS for 5 years and in my time in this district I have taught Honors HS Physics, 8th grade Science and 7th grade Science! Formerly, I have taught Chemistry, 6th grade Science, Health and I also have taught outdoor education courses at Shaker Lakes Nature Center in Cleveland, Ohio. In my free time I enjoy mountain biking, skiing, running, playing sports and have been the head coach for Men’s HS Varsity Soccer. My love of Science spans into my everyday life, and that passion is something I love sharing with my students, and frankly anyone who is willing to listen! Im very excited to be a part of the KCAA team!
