Ms. Hill, a native to the city of Pleasanton and alumna for Foothill High School, has always had a heart for teaching and networking. She graduated from San Diego State University where she earned a Bachelors of Arts in Media Studies and a Minor in Sociology. While pursuing her undergraduate degree, she volunteered in her local community to encourage young students to become avid readers. By organizing and serving as the Co-Chair for a program called Champions are Readers in San Diego, she supported reading enrichment for students at the elementary level. Seeing students discover the joy of reading left a lasting impression. Soon after, Ms. Hill knew teaching in the classroom would be her ultimate career destination. Currently, she has been an assistant teacher at Hart Middle School where she teaches 8th grade English. In addition, she is the assistant coach for the girls’ 8th grade girls’ basketball team and is set to also coach the 8th grade girls’ volleyball team in the Spring. Ms. Hill enjoys working with young students and understands the privilege she has as an educator. She will be receiving her Single Subject English credential in June 2016 from California State University East Bay.
During her free time, she dreams about traveling and the adventures she had for four months in 2010 studying abroad and visiting places in Thailand, Vietnam, Bali, India, Nepal, and Australia. She is thrilled to be joining the team at Mill Creek Academy and share her love of teaching
