Mrs. Heidi Switzer
I can’t imagine being anywhere but at Bishop School! This is my 20th 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 27 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 am currently in school, working for an Administrative Credential.
My daughter Corinne is 31 and my son Andrew is 30. I have three beautiful grandchildren, Hunter 7, Emma 5, and Archer 23 months 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.
