Welcome to Ms. Hillis's class!
I am excited to be one of your teachers this year! I have a passion for history and learning. I believe that the study of history explains our past, directly affects the present, and gives insight for the future. The world is incredibly expansive and holds a wonderful variety of people and cultures, but it is not out of reach.
"It's a dangerous business going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to..." - J.R.R. Tolkien
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
Life is a journey; continue to learn...make it a rewarding adventure.
