I am Heidi Diller, the music teacher at HES. This year is my 11th year of teaching at Hiawatha Elementary School and overall my 18th year of teaching. I grew up in Hiawatha and attended Hiawatha Elementary School, Robinson Middle School and Hiawatha High School. In 1999, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in K-12 Vocal and Instrumental Music from Emporia State University. After teaching for a few years, I went on to earn my Master’s degree in Special Music Education from Wichita State University in 2007. My first seven years of teaching were spent as an elementary music teacher in Mulvane, KS. I love working with the elementary children and sharing with them my love of music!
My husband, Chris, and I have three girls and one boy. When I am not at school, I enjoy reading, going for walks, and playing the piano.
