"Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him" ~Maya AngelouAbout the TeacherHello, my name is Rachel Hilley and I am so excited to be teaching at Apple Creek again this year. This is my 10th year here, but it will be my 14th year teaching. I have taught kindergarten and first grade, as well as, 7th and 8th grade reading. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Master's degree in Reading. I recently finished a Master's in School Counseling as well. I am very passionate about teaching and strive to make a difference in every child's life that I meet. I look forward to meeting everyone and can't wait to start working with the students. I know this year is going to be great.
