My name is Susan Hill.

I have been married to David for 38 years, this Christmas. I am a mother of 8 and grandmother of 12 (so far).  I've been teaching at Kingston Public Schools for 13 years. I feel extremely fulfilled in what I do. I remember when I was in the 6th grade, and my father was pastoring a small church in Dorchester, TX.  It was there he allowed me to be the Vacation Bible School Director over the younger children. I was "hooked" after that.

Other things also influenced my decision to become a teacher. One of which was growing up with an older brother who was mentally handicapped. He still is one of the "loves" of my life. I studied all I could get my hands on in college that had to do with special education and/or reading. I still do.

There is a drive to do what we do when we teach. Some say, "Some people are born to be teachers".  I don't know if that's true, but I do know that I do feel driven, and feel extremely elated when a child succeeds in the classroom. I love being a part of making that happen. 

I guess every teacher wants to make a difference. I'm no different. I do. But I also know they are not going to remember everything I've taught them. A wise person once shared a phrase in a Reading conference I was attending. I've never forgotten it's impact. I have the quote where I can see it every day. It says,

"They might not remember WHAT you said, but they WILL remember how you made them feel". 

That's the difference I want to make. That's why I'm a teacher.
