Mr. Diego Fuentes

I've been teaching at Hillcrest School since 2006. Before starting the music program in the fall of 2016, I taught in our Life Skills and Developmental Units.  I've always used music to engage students in the classroom so when it was announced that we would be having our first music program I jumped at the opportunity. I love classical and rock guitar, composing my own pieces and songs, and co-writing with my students. I have an amazing job. 🎼
