Hillsborough district names its Teacher of Year
Hill was nominated by Greenfield Elementary School principal Noreen McAloon who said Tuesday she has been impressed with Hill who started and continues to run the school's compost pile with her third grade class. Hill and the third grade also run the school's recycling programs, McAloon said.
This year, each grade level in the K through fourth grade school is responsible for observing a particular tree on the school grounds and noting how it changes throughout the season.
Hill organized this project to include artist-in-residence David Fichter, who plans to takes the students drawings of their trees and use them to create a mosaic mural for permanent display at the school.
McAloon nominated Hill because she fit with the Hillsborough County Conservation District's criteria for teacher of the year by contributing to the natural resources of the school and by teaching conservation and stewardship, she said.
"She emphasizes their importance as citizens as part of the community to maintain that nature environment, and how to seek out ways to maintain it," she said.
