• Natalie Hill  Welcome to Mrs. Hill's Webpage

    Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!

    I have 30 years experience as a Family and Consumer Science teacher.  I love kids and look forward to working with each student this year. This year I will be teaching Exploring Careers and Yearbook. These classes are electives and we will be doing a lot of hands on learning.  Below are brief descriptions of the courses.  
     
    Exploring Careers:
     
    The goal of this course is to create a culture of high expectation and continuous improvement that provides middle school students with a foundation for success in high school, future studies, and careers. Students explore college and career planning within specific career cluster(s). The students research labor market information, learn job-seeking skills, and create documents required for employment. Students use self-knowledge to explore and set realistic goals. Students will use interest inventory software or other tools to explore areas of personal interest. Students will use this information to explore educational requirements for a variety of chosen career paths.  Students will use decision-making and problem-solving skills for college and career planning. Students will explore valid, reliable educational and career information to learn more about themselves and their interests and abilities. Students integrate skills from academic subjects, information technology, and interpersonal communication to make informed decisions.
