Physical Education Teachers

Tammy Fahey




Born and raised here in North County. I Attended Palomar College for my Associates degree, then San Diego State from my Bachelor’s, Majoring in Physical education. I also attended San Diego State for my Teaching Credentials, then Cal. State University San Marcos for my Master’s in Education.

Moving and being active is critical to our students and the future of their heath. In middle school our goal is to expose them to as many different activities as possible, in the hopes of them finding at least one area of activity that they can carry on into their adult life’s.  We are also, working to incorporate more heath into the curriculum, to help students understand how being active is an important part of their health.


Rik Currier


Hello, my name is Rik Currier and I’m an Orange County native who developed an early love of athletics. My determination, hard work and desire to compete led me to becoming a stand out pitcher in high school and the opportunity to be recruited to many prestigious Universities. I chose to attend the University of Southern California on a full athletic scholarship. My college career was highlighted by many accolades which include Two Time All-American, PAC-10 Pitcher of the Year, member of the 1998 National Championship team, three-time College World Series participant, and the current USC career strike out record holder. Upon graduating USC, I was selected as the 6th round draft pick for the New York Yankees, and I played baseball professionally for eight years. My teaching career began as a Middle School teacher at Orange Unified where I taught Physical Education and US History. I have been with Oceanside Unified since 2016 and will have my Masters in Coaching and Athletic Administration completed through Concordia University, Irvine in May of 2019. I live in Orange County with my wife and four children and am excited for the opportunity to share my knowledge, experience and passion for athletics with the students at Lincoln Middle School.


Ben Rubin


My name is Ben Rubin.  This is my first year teaching Physical Education at Lincoln Middle School here in Oceanside.  In the past, I have also taught math, reading intervention, and English as a Foreign Language.  Although I consider myself an all-around educator, my true passion lies in Physical Education so I am thrilled to be teaching it here at Lincoln.


I was born in Chicago, Illinois and cheer for all Chicago-based teams (Cubs, Bears, Bulls, etc.).  I attended college at the University of California, San Diego where I obtained a Bachelors of Science in Psychology and minored in Educational Studies.  I graduated from the Psychology honors program and went on to have my honors thesis published in an APA Journal.  I then earned my Multiple Subject and Single Subject Physical Education teaching credentials through the Cal State San Marcos Middle Level program (The only teaching credential program in California that focuses primarily on middle level education).


On my free time, I enjoy traveling, playing and watching sports, attending concerts, camping, hiking, and fishing.  I'm looking forward to an amazing year ahead!
