Meet The Teacher!
Hi, my name is Mrs. Stilwell and I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year at HES! I am thrilled to be returning to school for another year of learning, fun, and adventures! I can't wait to learn all about your child and your families, but first, let me share a little bit about me.
I was born, raised, and attended college (Indiana University of PA) in beautiful southeastern Pennsylvania. Our family has called VA our home after 12 military moves around the world. We have two dogs Jackson & Bowie that love to be outside with us at our river house on the water in Mathews, VA. Our children are all grown up and live in Pittsburgh, PA.
There is so much that I am looking forward to this year. Most importantly, I am excited to share the love of learning with you and your child. I am extending an invitation for you to come and join us in this most fascinating adventure of learning to read/write, working with mathematics, learning about science/social studies and exploring engineering. We have a lot to learn this year and it will be hard work! Be sure and ask your child daily what they worked on and share in the experience at home.
