Coach Hillyer, PE & Health

Hello!, I am Coach (Sandy) Hillyer.   The kids just call me "coach," and I love that!  This is my fourth year at Longfellow and in the Minneapolis School District. I have been teaching for more than 30 years and am loving my latest teaching position here at Longfellow!  I teach Health, Physical Education, and guide students with online classes and heath-related projects. Thus far our classes have included games such as ultimate frisbee, football, volleyball, and some "fitness walking".  In health we have done the majority of our work in the area of nutrition and personal wellness.  In my personal life I have a husband and two daughter', both teenagers!  My life is full of watching sporting events (that generally include my daughters) and being a mom!  After school I teach swimming lessons to kids ages 6 months to 12 years old. 

My passions and interests: I enjoy teaching all sports especially Volleyball and Softball. I enjoy outdoor activitie like biking, walking, hiking, canoeing, and swimming.  I also enjoy cooking, yard work, and friends.
