Hillis, Heather » Welcome


This is my 14th year teaching. I have previously taught fifth grade, pre-k, second grade, and special education. This is my fifth year teaching first grade.  I feel that my history allows me to understand where the students start and where they will go in their education. I look forward to this amazing school year with you and your child! It is my mission to prepare students for success at the next level of education and in life. I am passionate about teaching and learning. I received my specialist degree in reading in 2021. I share my love of reading with my students by helping them see the magic every book holds. When you read, you can go anywhere or be anything. The world is at your fingertips with a good book.
