Mrs. Heidi Switzer

I can’t imagine being anywhere but at Bishop School! This is my 21th year teaching at Bishop and I feel a very strong connection to our students and school community. My own two children entered kindergarten at Bishop School 28 years ago! I was not a teacher at Bishop then, but I was an active Bishop parent, just like you!

I grew up in Sunnyvale and went to Lakewood Elementary School, where my mother was a teacher for the Gifted and Talented program. My father was a scientist for Stanford University. I attended Madrone Junior High (which is now Columbia Middle School) and graduated from Sunnyvale High School.  I graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art and went on to National University for a teaching credential and Master’s Degree in Cross Cultural Teaching. I also hold an Administrative Credential. 

My daughter Corinne is 32 and my son Andrew is 31. I have three beautiful grandchildren, Hunter 8, Emma 6, and Archer 2 years old. My wonderful husband Steve and I love living in the Bishop Elementary School community. When we have time away from work, we love to go camping at the beach or in the mountain forests. I love to paint and do other crafts, as well as read and play games with my family.
