KATIE DEANDA - PHYSICAL EDUCATION TEACHER
Hello Hillview Students and Parents!
My name is Katie DeAnda (formerly Salem), and this year I will be teaching Advanced Dance (7/8), Hillview on the Move (7/8), and Yoga / Pilates (6th grade) in the Physical Education Department. My personal background is in dance, and I am thrilled to be able to share my dance and movement knowledge with the students here at Hillview.
I grew up in Menlo Park and attended Hillview as a middle school student. After graduating from M-A, I went on to earn my BA in Dance with a minor in Kinesiology from San Jose State University. I then earned my teaching credential from Notre Dame de Namur where I was selected as the "Outstanding Credential Candidate" from my graduating class. Before teaching at Hillview, I taught PE for the Stanford New School's East Palo Alto Academy and the Athena Academy.
This is my fifth year at Hillview and I look forward to continuing to share my passion for Physical Education and Dance with the Hillview students. Please feel free to contact me by email with any questions firstname.lastname@example.org. Go Hawks!
