Miss Hillis

Welcome to Third Grade!


My name is Miss Hillis and I am so excited about being a 3rd grade teacher again at Blue Creek Elementary School! 

I got engaged in July of 2023 and will be getting married in February of 2024!

I just moved to North Carolina from New York last summer! In New York, I taught Special Education Preschool my first year. Then I was a Permanent Substitute / Leave Replacement Teacher for 4 years. Two years ago, I was a Literacy Specialist for grades 3-6, but for the last 2 months of school I was moved to the 3rd grade position. I am ecstatic to continue my journey as a 3rd grade teacher at BCES! 

I love my family, Disney, camping and my three puppies! My dream vacation is to go to Disney Paris or Italy!
