My Story

Linda Campana has been teaching physical education at Mission San Jose High School in Fremont for more than 35 years - coaching championship tennis teams, sharing her love of dance and, most of all, encouraging students to pursue their goals while stressing the concepts of lifetime fitness. Known for her perennial optimism and devotion to students, Linda has been central to Mission San Jose's physical education curriculum through budget cuts and significant staff changes. For more than 10 years she has been the only full-time female PE teacher at a school of 2,000 students. Through her commitment to physical fitness, Linda is a role model to countless female students. She has parlayed her love of dance into a successful dance program, with several students moving on to open their own studios.
