Greetings Students,

Welcome back IN PERSON! :)  I am super happy to be your Physical Education teacher this year!  I just got married in July on the 24th and I have a new last name, Mrs. Bostwick.  I know it'll take time to transiton but I am excited!

I want to introduce myself by telling you a bit about me.  This is my 6th year teaching here at Hillview.  I have a second job as a fitness instructor teaching group fitness classes in the evenings and on weekends.  I currently teach body sculpting, Zumba, and Indoor Cycling.  I've been teaching fitness classes for over 35 years!

I used to run a 9 1/2 minute mile but due to a bad knee, I am no longer 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 20 and a Sophomore in college attending San Jose State University.  My daughter Brooke is 17 and a Junior in high school. We have a dog named Bandit and two cats; Bella and Caspian.

My email address is  This is the best way to contact me.  A copy of the PE syllabus is on this website and should have been turned back in to me with both the family and student's name printed and signed.  This does go towards class points under the participation section.  



Sincerely yours,

Mrs. Bostwick (former Ms. Rickenbacher)
