Hidden Hills Elementary School Principal

Gianna Colonna Bio

Gianna Colonna

Dear Hidden Hills Families,

It is my sincere pleasure and honor to be the Principal of Hidden Hills Elementary School. Just a little about myself, I have been married for 12 years to my high school sweetheart and have three children. My free time is spent running my little ones around to all of their activities and getting away to the beach as much as possible. 

I have not only grown up in the Paradise Valley Unified School District, but I also began my career 15 years ago in this amazing district. I was at Palomino Primary as the Resource teacher and Behavior Interventionist. I also had the opportunity of being the Assistant Principal at Eagle Ridge Elementary. I hold a Master’s degree in Professional Counseling, a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership, a Behavior Support Specialist certificate, and a Special Ed Cross Categorical certificate. 

I am truly passionate about leading Hidden Hills and feel extremely fortunate to work with such a dedicated staff and community. Know that I am here with an open mind and look forward to working with you to continue the educational journey of your child. Please feel free to stop in at anytime, as my door is always open.
