Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Suzanne Hillier
In 2003, when my youngest son entered first grade, I decided to enter teaching. Armed with a mathematics degree and a supportive cohort, I started teaching 8th grade math in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Since then, I have taught all levels of math, from fifth grade up to AP Calculus, along with Physics and Biology. Middle school has always been where my heart is. I am excited to be part of the launch of Rodger Quist Middle School. I will be teaching 7th and 8th grade math.
I am inspired by students who show grit and determination to overcome their struggles, whether they are academic or personal. They learn to accept their failures and use them as tools to grow and improve.
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. - Barack Obama
