Hi, my name is Miss Hill and I would like to sincerely welcome you to my page. I grew up in Upper Darby and have a deep love for the Upper Darby School District and all that it has to offer students from many different backgrounds. I attended West Chester University and received a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education; several years later, I attended Cabrini College for a Master's degree in Education. More importantly, I have had the honor of teaching at Stonehurst Hills since 2009. Teaching 4th grade for 10 years has been such a rewarding experience, and I am truly grateful for every student that walks through my door. Together with a team of passionate and creative teachers, I am committed to providing your family with a loving and academically sound foundation for a lifetime of learning. Every year is a new chapter… a new beginning for your child, and I am excited to team with you as we encourage your child to grow to their fullest potential this year. Thank you for sharing your amazing children with us!

Parent Math Homework Tip: Everyday your child will write down objectives and notes/examples of problems in their math notebook. This should be a resource to help them at home. If they say, they do not know how to do it, direct them to their math notebook. If they have not copied notes, please encourage your child to stay focused in math and class and copy the examples that are provided to help them. If your child has copied notes and is still frustrated with homework. Please write a note with your signature at the top of the homework letting me know your child needs extra help with that topic.
Here below is parent letter for each math chapter to give you an idea of what your child is learning in class and should be studying.
