Natalie Hill Welcome to Mrs. Hill's Webpage

    Welcome to the 2018-19 school year. 

    I have 31 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:(Semester Course) 
    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. http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter127/ch127a.html
    Yearbook (All Year)   
    Students communicate in a variety of forms such as print, digital, or online media for a variety of audiences and purposes. Students are expected to plan, draft, and complete written and/or visual communications on a regular basis, carefully examining their copy for clarity, engaging language, and the correct use of the conventions and mechanics of written English. Students are expected to become analytical consumers of media and technology to enhance their communication skills. In addition, students will apply journalistic ethics and standards. Published works of professional journalists, technology, and visual and electronic media are used as tools for learning as students create, clarify, critique, write, and produce effective communications. Students will refine and enhance their journalistic skills, research self-selected topics, and plan, organize, and prepare a project(s) in one or more forms of media. http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter110/ch110c.html
