Hello!

My name is Mr. Hill and I am excited to join the Loyalsock Township High School staff. In 2005, I received a bachelors degree in history from Susquehanna University, where I competed in both football and track and field. In 2011, after a few years in sales, I decided to return to Lycoming college for my teaching certificate. Last year I completed my masters degree in 21st Century Teaching and learning from Wilkes University.  I have spent the past five years at Warrior Run High School teaching U.S. History. In addition to this, I will be entering my fifth year as the head boys track coach here at Loyalsock.

Welcome! Take a closer look at my classroom as well as learn ways to help your child succeed in kindergarten!

About me

I am a full-day kindergarten teacher at Donald E. Schick Elementary School in the Loyalsock Township School District, Williamsport, PA.  I have been teaching kindergarten for 21 years. I received my B.S. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education at Penn State University and my M.S. in Education at Wilkes University. I live in Rose Valley and I have three children–Natalie, age 17, Owen, age 16, and Jace, age 11. I like to work out, attend my kids’ sporting events, and spend time with friends and family.  I love Penn State, go Nittany Lions!, the color red, and dark chocolate! Yum, yum!

 

Kindergarten Report Card: Our kindergarten report card is sent home in November, March, and June.  We meet with parents for a parent/teacher conference in November and March.

Language Arts: We use the Storytown Reading Series published by Houghton Mifflin.  This is a comprehensive program that includes oral language, phonics, phonemic awareness, comprehension, and writing components. We support this with Writing Workshop, Fundations,  and guided reading.

Kidwriting: We use our own variation of the Kid Writing program by Eileen Feldgus.  This is a program in which we encourage children to use their sounds and stretch out words that they hear.  We do not expect it to be correct.  We call that “Adult Writing,” which we write under their writing.  For more information about Kid Writing you can go to the following link:http://kidwriting.homestead.com/questions.html

Everyday Math: We use the Everyday Mathematics 4 curriculum from the University of Chicago. It offers a spiral curriculum which allows the children to practice each skill many times in order to master it.

Social Studies & Science: We use hands-on, investigative, and inquiry-based curriculum for these subjects.  In social studies, we will be learning how to be good citizens, expanding our knowledge of history and holidays, and exploring the world around us through various units during the school year.  We utilize the Fusion Science curriculum which provides an interactive textbook, as well as, hands on activities and technology based learning.

High Frequency Words

Kindergarten students are responsible for recognizing 54 high frequency words.  The words are introduced during the nine themes throughout the school year. High Frequency Words
