Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Dennis J. Harting
Physical Education Teacher / Basketball Coach
Growing up in Northern California, upon graduating from high school I moved to the Central Valley where I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminology and completed my Single Subject Teaching Credential in Physical Education from California State University, Fresno. After teaching two years of high school, I relocated to the South Bay last year with my wife who works at Stanford University. During my first year in the district I taught 4th/5th Grade PE at Dilworth, Muir, Nimitz & Sedgwick Elementary Schools. It is very exciting to be asked to move up to teach this year at Cupertino Middle School.
Being lucky enough to marry a high school state champion (volleyball & track) and college athlete (basketball), we both enjoy fitness, attending live sporting events (Stanford Athletics), hiking, traveling and spending time together. Anna is not only my wife but also my “Best Friend” and biggest supporter.
Entering my 20th year in Education by way of coaching & teaching, I know it will be a fantastic year of learning, sharing and teaching our CMS young students on a daily basis!
