Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Ginger Hill
I have been a Clayton resident for my whole life. I knew that I wanted to be a teacher when I was 6 years old. My first student was my younger sister!! I received my undergraduate degree from Meredith College, and then I obtained my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Campbell University. I have taught for 29 years in Clayton area schools. The majority of that time was teaching 5th grade ELA and Social Studies at East Clayton Elementary. This will be my third year in middle school. I teach 6th grade English/Language Arts. I am so glad that the new school year has begun!
Parents, please return any beginning of the year forms that were given out at Orientation or that have been sent home with your child.

Students that fail a test will required to be remediated and retake the test. Students that pass the test, but would like a better grade will also get a chance to retest (on most quizzes). These students will sign up to take the retest and need to be present on the retest date. This date will be posted for all students and sent out on REMIND for parents. All students taking a retest will be required to do extra assignments on the material in order to review for the quiz. If the work is not completed by the retest date, then students REQUESTING the retest will NOT retest, and the retest window will be closed. Certainly there are circumstances that may alter this plan. If there is a situation that needs an exception, then the parent needs to let me know. Thanks so much!!
I hope everyone is doing well while we are out of school. My assignments will be posted in Google Classroom. Certainly if you or your child have any questions, you can always send a REMIND message or an email. However, I will have "office hours" each day where I am specifially checking email more to accomodate any questions and concerns. They are listed below.
