Hello Students,

I want to introduce myself by telling you a bit about me.  This is my third year teaching here at Hillview.  I'm so happy to be here and to be your teacher.  I am a fitness instructor in the evenings and on weekends.  I currently teach body sculpting, Zumba, and Indoor Cycling.  I've been teaching fitness classes for 30 years!

I used to run a 9 1/2 minute mile but due to a bad knee, I no longer are able to run. I do enjoy power walking and playing tennis in my free time.  I also play piano and snow ski.  My favorite food is Sushi, my favorite color is red, and my favorite place to be is anywhere there's a beach and waves.  I love to boggie board and body surf.

I have 2 children.  My son Austin is 18 and a Freshman in college attending San Jose State University.  My daughter Brooke is 15 and a sophomore in high school. We have a dog named Bandit and two cats; Bella and Caspian.

It's very important you learn how to use and manuver your way around websites on a computer.  I will have random assignments on my website and need you to know how to access the information.  

If you don't have a computer at home, you may use the school library, the city library, or ask to use my computer in my office.  I'm here to help you in any way I can but I need you to ask.  It's your responsibility to find a way to get the information you need!


Let's have a successful year and that means working together as a team.


Sincerely yours,

Ms. Rickenbacher (Ms. R)
